Australasian Gannets at Waimumu Road

This transformer, painted by an anonymous artist, shows the Australasian Gannets of Muriwai year in, year out. The cooling ducts are inscribed: takapu, Australasian gannet, morus serrator – the names of the birds in Maori, English and Latin.

Sadly, this is one of the examples that demonstrates that public art is not a total deterrent against tagging.
