SCULPTUREUM 3

After spending some time on the outside collection we went indoors to view more artworks



















This chandelier was massive.  It was bought in America and the deal was that the vendor arranged for installation which meant that they had to pay for airfares out to New Zealand as well as installation and that alone came to $250,000.

My favourite piece was the goat made from cutlery.  Its coat was the tines of the forks.

  2. A very eclectic variety of work; even a Picasso thrown in for good measure.

    1. If you are up this way it is well worth a visit. Not far from Warkworth (just past Matakana). You would need a couple of hours or more though.
      Excellent restaurant.
