Captain Cook's Map of the South Island
Also on Saturday at Tim Wraight's. This sculpture, a 3D rendition of Captain Cook's map of the South Island of New Zealand, by Warren Viscoe used to stand in nearby Mapua, but was neglected and damaged. So Tim's brought it to studio for restoration. Later in the afternoon, Tim, his father and Ben took it off the truck and stood it upright on the lawn; it was quite a magnificent, masculine piece of work, and I really should have photographed it then, but I was busy talking to Claudia about textiles.
