Sculpture trail

sculpture trail
Having had time in Hawke’s Bay, exploring a few of its wineries, the husband of my niece suggested that I join them and their children in visiting some wineries in the Matakana area north of Auckland. The first one chosen was Brick Bay because not only does it have a restaurant but also a very interesting sculpture trail which takes about an hour to complete.sculpture trail2 Along its course, through native bush (the word used in NZ to denote wooded country) there are around sixty works of art to discover, sometimes amusing, sometimes appealing, occasionally puzzling, rarely easily ignored. Two I found arresting were The Choice by Paul Dibble, a work in bronze based on an apple tree, and Reflective Habitat by Gregor Kregar. This dominates the pond in which it stands. Much discussion over a very good lunch about relative merit and about which were the favourites. Everyone liked The Choice.
