Statue of AFL footballer Malcolm Blight. The statue of Blight launching a long kick while dressed in the Woodville No. 15 jumper took sculptors Meliesa Judge and Will Kuiper 3260 hours to produce.
 

Malcolm Jack Blight AM (born 16 February 1950) is a former Australian rules footballer who represented North Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL), and Woodville Football Club in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) during the 1970s and 1980s. He is currently serving as a coaching advisor at the Gold Coast Football Club.

One of few players to have won the Brownlow Medal and the Magarey Medal, and so far the only player to have kicked 100 goals in a season in both the VFL and the SANFL, Blight is rightly regarded as one of Australian football's greatest-ever players. In addition, he has captained the state representative sides of both Victoria and  South Australia.
