Vakamanu (Filipe Tohi, 2008)

Vakamanu (Filipe Tohi, 2008)

This bird creature is my favorite sculpture from Filipe Tohi’s exhibition at the Mangere Arts Centre, featured here on Wednesday.

Crafted from (grey) andesite stone, and displayed in soft light on a grey floor, I found it a challenge to get a satisfactory image.

For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

(I know, an ALL GREY picture, won’t cut it on the day of the rugby world cup final – but at least it’s not TOUT BLEU; go the ALL BLACKS! Ooooops, how did the colour slip into a black-and-white post?)

Added after the game: NZ vs France 8:7.
