Whakuku a Nga Kina

by stephen clover on February 11, 2013

The art world is full of sharks[citation needed], but one recent public sculpture is attracting watery beasts of a different kind.

Via his Facebook group, artist Michel Tuffery has been documenting the sting-rays which have been cruising his Nga Kina at Kumutoto wharf which was installed in November 2012.

Apparently the rays always turn up at low-tide, so go down and check them out! (Google Maps link)
