Sculpture in the Park

Following on from my comment about plaques or information boards beside Maori works in public places, I was heartened to find just that near this rock carving in Christchurch Botanic Gardens. Te Puna Ora, The Stream of Life, is an historic site blessed by Tip Manihera ...the rest you can read on the plaque.

The rock has been carved by local carver, Riki Manuel and Douglas Woods and if you're looking carefully, you might walk right by it without even seeing it, as it's tucked under a tree beside the spring and camouflaged among grasses and ferns.
