Koru Land (Detail)

John Botica is a specialist in pebble sculptures. This work is in the courtyard of the Mangere Arts Centre — Ngā Tohu o Uenuku. The last picture shows it in context, with a stone sculpture by Filipe Tohi in the foreground.

Koru is the Maori word for unfurling fern fronds.

We have shown another work by John Botica (“Compass Rose” at the Harbourview Sculpture Trail at Te Atatu) on April 2.
