LEWISTON, IDAHO (AP) - A 9-foot-tall statue depicting Arnold Schwarzenegger at the height of his bodybuilding career has received a final critique by the former Mr. Universe before it’s sent for bronzing.

The former California governor who recently announced his return to acting visited northern Idaho on Wednesday to suggest a few modifications to the clay sculpture. It’s destined to stand in a rippling, full-flex pose outside his childhood home that is now a museum in Thal, Austria.

Schwarzenegger tells the Lewiston Tribune that he chose Lewiston artist Ralph Crawford to create the statue because of Crawford’s passion and ability to produce a dramatic sculpture.

Crawford says he has already started work on a new sculpture of Schwarzenegger showing him during his time as governor.
