EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

There is a new statue of the University of Oregon mascot on the campus in Eugene!

Just before the Oregon Ducks men's basketball team took on the UCLA Bruins on Saturday, the school unveiled the new 8 foot tall bronze duck.

The bronze duck is installed between Matthew Knight Arena, and the University of Oregon Alumni Center.

The artist is Alison Brown, 26, of Troutdale who happens to be an alumni of the University of Oregon.

Brown said it was flattering to have so many people come out to see the duck be unveiled.

The Clarey Family privately commissioned the statue and then gifted it to the university.
