Statues in Black and Gold

Last summer, when my 8-year old grandson from the US  was visiting me, I took him for a drive around the marina beach. He was curious about the various landmarks and statues and I was explaining to him in the best of my ability.

Seeing the statues of Sivaji Ganesan and Gandhi he had a legitimate query: “Why is an actor’s statue in gold and Gandhi’s is in black?” I had no convincing answer for him.

Do you?
