Statue commemorates a horse called "Norseman" who allegedly kicked a gold nugget which started the gold rush to the district and after whom the town is named.
In 1894 when prospector Laurie Sinclair stopped off to visit his brother on his way to Esperance, he tethered his horse "Hardy Norseman" overnight and in the morning was amazed to discover that it had pawed up a gold nugget. A rich gold reef was discovered on the already proclaimed Dundas Field and thousands flocked to make their fortune.
