More Info →Nga Huruhuru Rangatira public sculpture

Nga Huruhuru Rangatira, "the feathers of the chief", forms a 6.4-metre high archway on the corner of The Square and Church Street, and is illuminated at night. The stylised giant huia feathers are the creation of Massey University Professor of Maori Visual Arts Robert Jahnke. It features three feathers on one side, and two on the other, representing a coming together of Maori cultural references and Western knowledge. Cutaway sections on the columns are in the shape of huia.
