The Love Stone

Mahara Garden

In a post earlier this year on the latest public sculpture in central Wellington, we said there weren’t any sculptures in Waikanae. Of course, that isn’t really the case as there is this artwork outside the library in Mahara Place, originally commissioned by the Mahara Gallery.

The problem is that being positioned where it is under a permanent awning, it isn’t very noticeable.  Whenever the council gets around to giving Mahara Place the makeover it badly needs, a more central location in the middle and in the open would be better for it.  OK, it will get some bird droppings there, but they are easy enough to clean off.

Another possibility is in the rose garden next to the parking lot, the second photo.
