Kupe Sculpture at Wellington Harbor

From the plaque attached to the sculpture…

“Matahourua Te Waka, Ko Kupe Te Tangata, Ko Hine Te Aparangi Te Wahine

Kupe Raiatea the explorer, his wife Hine Te Aparangi, and Pekahourangi the Tohunga, sight Aotearoa, New Zealand from their canoe Matahourua.

This Kupe group statue was created in plaster of paris by sculptor William Trethewey, and featured at the 1940 NZ Centennial Exhibition at Rongotai.

In 1999 the statue was cast in bronze as a Millennium project and unveiled on 4 March 2000 as a tribute to all who have come to these shores.”

You’ll find more on this sculpture and alternative histories on Wikipedia.

More words at Wellington Harbor

The harbor is filled with both sculpture and these word focused artworks. As a writer, this is very heartening to see. Typically strictly visual art wins out.
