& # 39; I'm just glad they got my tan right & # 39 ;: AFLW star Tayla Harris leaves the Project panel in stitches with a hilarious look at a new statue that perpetuates that perpetuation
- Tayla Harris has left the Project panel in stitches with her interpretation of her new statue
- The 22-year-old who plays in the AFLW, was this year on an iconic photo
- When asked if she liked the image, she said she was & # 39; happy that she had the color right & # 39;
Tayla Harris left The Project panel in stitches with her to take a new picture of her during a hilarious interview on Wednesday night.
The 22-year-old from Brisbane, who plays for Carlton in the AFLW, was photographed earlier this year with an athletic kick during a match.
The photo became iconic after she had been walking around on the internet in an incident that highlighted the issue of sexism in sport.
The moment was immortalized when a bronze statue was unveiled on Wednesday at Melbourne & # 39; s Federation Square.

When asked by The Project hosts what it was like to unveil the statue, Tayla replied that it was a surreal experience.
& # 39; It is a three meter high statue, so it will probably end up in the ruck next season. I will handle that as it comes. I'm just glad they got my tan right, & she laughed.
& # 39; I clearly source it, of course. Absolutely surreal was the word that came to mind.
& # 39; People were certainly out of curiosity, but just kept hanging and taking pictures with me and the statue … and then I walked away a bit and they forgot about me. & # 39;
The host asked if she was nervous about what the image would look like.
& # 39; I laughed a lot about that and decided that if I just accepted it that way and maybe it even got more publicity, that would probably be a good thing. It worked very well, I think they did a great job. & # 39;
Mrs Harris is also well aware of the importance of the moment.
& # 39; I didn't necessarily do anything in footy that justified a bronze statue – it's definitely the moment. Like the plaque in the ground next to it & # 39; more than a staircase & # 39; says, & she said.
Asked if she was worried that she would be hunted for the statue again, Harris answered sharply.
& # 39; I told my parents that they are trying to avoid social media today. As you can imagine when someone gets a statue, there might be people trying to drag you down if they think you don't deserve it, & she said.
& # 39; But it's not about me, it's about the moment and what happened. & # 39;
The statue is on Federation Square in Melbourne until the final of the AFL
