More Info →"Ghost of the Huia" by Paul Dibble

Paul Dibble’s Ghost of the Huia sculpture is a tribute to the memory of the extinct huia. A unique native bird, the last confirmed sighting of a live huia was in the Tararua ranges in 1907. The sculpture was created in 2010 and installed the following year by Dibble Art Studio and Zimmerman Art Gallery. The huia is made of bronze, and the base of the sculpture is made from Corten steel.
