This dinosaur sculpture is currently installed at the Arts Centre as part of the Scape Public Art festival. It is by artist Gregor Kregar. It’s proving to be fascinating to passers-by (especially small children). It looks like it might drift off – but it’s actually quite solid.

This Moa statue can be found in Redcliffs – just opposite the New World supermarket and in front of the old Mother Hubbard’s building. It was sculpted by Andrew Lyons of the Heathcote Valley Gallery (which is at 22 Station Road) and was commissioned by the building owner. The statue is very appropriate as moa hunters used to use the caves around Redcliffs and there have been Maori artefacts found within the caves.
