A $12,000 bronze and marble statuette celebrating Albury's role in the Uiver story landed in town this week.
The statuette is a replica of the original sculpture presented to the mayor of Amsterdam by then Albury mayor Alfred Waugh in 1935 and now takes pride of place next to the original plaster maquette in council's foyer.
For Uiver historian Noel Jackling, not only does the statuette represent the Uiver's story but also the ongoing relationship between the Netherlands and Australia.

"Not only has Australia shared this huge dutch heritage but Albury has also had some very important parts to play in it," he said. "Now the statuette is here we can see this as a continuance of that shared Dutch heritage."
Albury councillor David Thurley hoped the statue would help educate the younger generation.
