Silver


Silver, for a year of colour. Ferns, by Neil Dawson. This glorious sculpture hangs above Civic Square in Wellington. The square is a lovely place enclosed by the magnificent city library, the city art gallery and the original, lovingly restored Town Hall. It's been there for years, without incident, which is remarkable for something suspended in mid air in this city known for its howling southerlies and gusty northerlies. Beautiful huh? Posted by Picasa

Beautiful shot. How does the suspension work? I'm curious since I've seen this on another blog.

Kate, can you see the wires? And if you look hard at the picture above you can see them too. They're long...they go to the buildings across the square. It hardly stirs in our often spectacular winds, so it has been very carefully engineered.
