Each of the approaches to the Huruhuru Creek bridge on Triangle Road (Henderson/Massey) are decorated with a row of pou (poles), and a pair of guardians in the shape of a boat closest to the bridge. Salvaged totara logs and aluminium. Carved by Whare Thomson.

  1. Wonderful! I bet the guardians are conscientious workers. For sure, I like the carvings!
