Huia Sign

Huia Sign


Many of the communities out west have artistic welcome signs. Here is the one of Huia (map), depicting the extinct Huia bird, pohutukawa blossom, Huia Bay flanked on the right by the cone of Te Komoki, with Huia Point on the left; South Manukau Head opens to the Tasman Sea in the distance.

Artwork by Chris Hunt.

Added October 2012: the above image was (mis-)”appropriated” in slides for a paper by Paul McPadden and Maria Clarke on “Current tax and legal issues in sport”, published on the website of the NZ Institute of Chartered Accountants (nobody ever asked for permission).
