Gargoyle

The marae at Unitec Institute of Technology blends traditional and modern styles. The gargoyles along the spouting are a contemporary expression. Master carver for the meeting house (Te Noho Kotahitanga, built 2003–2009): Dr Lyonel Grant.

  3. Those stylised faces are certainly dramatic! And love the bonus webbing in the foreground!

  8. Oh my, what a spectacular carving! I love the way you’ve photographed it, including the spiderweb and the diagonal lines.
