This statue of Captain James Cook is in Victoria Square.
Taken from Victoria Square. I was focusing on another subject when I turned and saw the punter coming. I must of given him ‘a look’ when I realised no one was in the Punt – as he smiled at me and called out “Sorry!”. Though you know what, I think I prefer the punt with just the (very cute) punter!
“The poupou is the work of Christchurch master carver Riki Manuel and was created from a totara trunk given by a West Coast farmer. The main theme of the poupou is mahinga kai (food resources). It also depicts tipuna (ancestors) of the Ng?i Tahu-Waitaha people”. Source: Christchurch Library
