Concrete Action, Part 2

These tall concrete sculptural panels are in the centre of Invercargill. When we took the photos on Saturday the panels were better lit by the natural light than we’re accustomed to seeing. If you look carefully, you can see two small shelves included on the panels and these both have a Green Man. Nigel was able to get a photo of the lower Green Man, included below. Part One was the photo I posted yesterday: ‘We are now one people’ and I’ve included it again at the bottom of this post.

Celtic/Maori Wall:  Using symbols and emblems, the wall brings together the two main cultures of the city and province – the Ngai Tahu iwi and people of Celtic origin.

The wall interprets our environment, with exposed river aggregate panels representing Southland’s landforms. The base of the structure features the ever-changing wave patterns of the southern ocean.

    1. Thank you! I assume so but there was no information there. The panels looked really good in the morning light with a clear blue sky behind. We hadn’t seen them looking so great before (Invercargill gets more than its fair share of grey cloudy days).
