The Sign Is Back!

Some months ago, the welcome sign to Titirangi disappeared – all the mosaic tiles had gone, leaving behind a bare backing board. Now a replacement has gone up, made by the original artist: Kate Millington. As before, it features fern fronds, bush-clad hills, the sea, and above all the sky (Titirangi is often translated as “Fringe of Heaven”).

Cause for celebration, even if it is a bit cold for a street party!

(We showed a picture of the earlier version in January 2010.)

  1. That’s a spectacular design for a sign.
