The UW Green Bay campus is the new home to a Leonardo Da Vinci statue.
Nestled in a wooden crate, it looks unassuming from far away, but look inside and you'll see a 550 pound statue of Leonardo Da Vinci.
"I have to say it was very moving to see it and breathtaking and I'm so excited we can share this with everybody," said associate professor of music, Sarah Meredith Livingston.
Five groups of UW-Green Bay students have traveled to Florence, Italy in the past ten years, because of that, the university formed a relationship with an Italian philanthropist there who donated the statue.
"We're very small. We're fifty-five hundred students and to get something like this also says something about our faculty that they have been able to make this connection with Florence," explained associate professor of humanistic studies, Derek Jeffreys.
It was created in just the past year near Luca, Italy and is one of only five to be donated to universities throughout the world and the only in the U.S.
Leonardo Da Vinci excelled in my areas of learning which university leaders say is the mission for students on campus.
"One of the ideals of this institution is that people get a sense of these different disciplines. We have a general education program where students will take classes in philosophy and the arts," said Jeffreys.
The university hasn't decided yet where it will go on campus, but plans are in the works to formally unveil the statue in August.
