The BIG Problem with Kate’s Neptune Statue

Over the winter break, Hughesy and Kate jetted off to various parts of the world for holidays.

Kate took the family to Vietnam and as it turns out she went mad, shopping for souvenirs.

She purchased some marble sculptures to remember the holiday including two carved marble urns, a marble table and stools plus a LIFE SIZED statue of Neptune that hadn’t been carved yet!

The Neptune statue was expected to take two months to carve and we expected it to weigh up to 600 KG, which already could see it being an issue to get shipped to Australia.

We can reveal, a little over one month later, the statue is carved and it’s real weight has been revealed… and it’s MUCH more than we expected.

According to the sculptors in Vietnam, the life-sized statue weighs 1000KG (or 1 Tonne)!

We spoke to a professional mover who said once (If ever) the statue arrives at the docks in Australia, it will be craned onto a special truck with ‘airbag suspension’ and transported to the final destination.
