“The sculpture encapsulates being able to have a go – to be courageous, to take on those challenges and break convention,” says Clark. “It was about a year ago that I started working with Cathy [on this sculpture] and it’s been quite a journey seeing it coming to life.”

“Cathy looked through a whole range of images and found a couple that she thought might work and we landed on this one. She created some figurines, almost like toy soldiers… then we selected one. She’s very clever and I’m indebted to her.”

Belinda Clark is the first female cricketer to have a statue cast in her honour. Clark played 15 tests and over 100 limited overs matches between 1991-2005, and became the first cricketer to score a double-hundred in one-day internationals when she made 229 runs off 155 balls against Denmark in 1997.

Weiszmann’s sculpture joins others depicting the likes of Richie Benaud, Steve Waugh, Stan McCabe and Fred Spofforth outside the historic Sydney Cricket Ground’s Walk of Honour.
