New Zealand Flax

Olympic Park, New Lynn, is filled with many artworks. This one is not found in any catalogue, a flax flower woven in situ by an anonymous wit.

Ali Brown has an interesting site about weaving with New Zealand flax (phormium tenax). It contains instructions about weaving a (slightly more elaborate) flax flower.

The reverse side of the flower is shown below.
