Purchasing a Maquette
The entire cost of the Matthew Flinders Memorial Statue is being met through the sale of limited edition, and individually numbered, maquettes seen here.
Well over half of the limited edition of 75 maquettes have sold but it is not too late to secure your own piece of Matthew Flinders history by purchasing of a limited edition maquette. Maquettes are cast in bronze by renowned British artist, Mark Richards FRBS, and approximately one quarter life size.
Each individually numbered maquette stands 305mm high and, with a diameter of 345mm, weighs 12.6 kgs. Individually numbered maquettes can be purchased by organisations and individuals for £4,500 plus VAT (shipping costs outside of London are extra).
To secure your strictly limited edition maquette please contact Jan Gausden at the Government of South Australia on ph. +44 (0)20 7520 9111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org All purchasers of maquettes will be invited to attend the unveiling of the Matthew Flinders Memorial Statue on Friday, 18 July 2014 (invitation only). Purchasers of maquettes and other donors will be publicly acknowledged unless they instruct otherwise.
