“Numbers’ by local artist Anton Parsons is located on the corner of Coleman Mall and The Square. The first sculpture commissioned by the Palmerston North Public Sculpture Trust, it was formally unveiled on Sunday 9 September 2007. The sculpture is a ‘fun’ piece, consisting of a series of stainless steel cubes joined in a loop with random numbers in sheet bronze riveted on. The numbers could portray anything from secret codes to mathematical formulae, to ordinary things like the first building blocks of a child's learning, with no particular intent asserted by the artist.Ten sculptures are planned to be positioned in the central area of Palmerston North in an equal funding partnership with the Palmerston North City Council.
