The Tayla Harris kick that triggered a watershed sporting moment during the AFLW season is being immortalised in bronze.
Standing 3.3m, the statue captures the famous photograph by Michael Willson of the AFL Women's player that made headlines in March when the Carlton high flyer became the target of a trolling storm.
Harris not only called out the inappropriate social media behaviour but sparked a global conversation around respect for female athletes, inclusivity and the power of community.
Harris said she was humbled by the statue, which was commissioned by AFLW sponsor NAB.
"It is surreal to see it, although I don't think I will fully understand or appreciate the significance of it for another 20 years," she said.
"I hope people pose with it and take photos and that it helps people feel confident and see that good things can come from being brave."
Created by NSW sculptor Terrance Plowright, the completed statue is expected to weigh a tonne, with a permanent site yet to be determined.
The prototype is now on show in Federation Square.
