A statue of Sir Colin Meads was unveiled by Pinetree himself in his hometown of Te Kuiti yesterday.
Sir Colin described the sculpture as “just marvellous”.
“It’s amazing how much detail has gone into it. Even my boot laces are laced how I used to lace them up,” Sir Colin said.
The 2.7-metre bronze sculpture weighs close to a tonne and took Auckland artist Natalie Stamilla about two months to create.
