Statues & Sculptures

20160716_145737

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.
