Rafa's statue at RG

may be unveiled on Thursday.
Last year the sculptor posted this pic but deleted his post soon after.

Contemporary statue and at 7 feet height and almost double width, it's probably imposing irl.
Not too impressed with the lack of facial features but it's still recognizable as Rafa.

This may not be the one that'll be unveiled... they may have another version
What do you folks think?

Of course it's AMAZING Rafa is getting this well deserved honor!:love:

I can't wait to see it. Mind blowing what Rafa has achieved on clay particularly at Roland Garros. Rafa was also presented with the original RG trophy when he achieved La Decima and Uncle Toni was also given a RG trophy. This honour will never be repeated. Some people will be so green with envy.

Can't see the French commissioning anything like this. Rafa approved the design a few years ago.

Weird faceless copper man with a bull that’s also wearing copper trainers ? Outrageous

I must have missed the edition in which he had to play at RG while avoiding getting murdered by a bull...

I was never fond of brilliant, reflective surfaces. I think it could have been way cooler. Still, a nice gesture from RG towards the greatest clay player ever.

Let me correct you. In 2017, Rafa was given a full-size copy of the FO trophy, with all 10 of his Roland Garros titles engraved.
In the picture you posted, Toni holds the original Coupe des Mousquetaires while Rafa poses with the full-size copy.
