I’m sorry, but the stone hairdryer and the embedded hairbrush (handle only visible) stacked behind Parliament buildings are just odd. These monoliths don’t move, but they almost seem to strut around the lawns, staring haughtily at the Reserve Bank and the other government buildings heading off up the Terrace. I don’t know about the hairdryer – perhaps it’s what happen when someone’s Nana knits a moa out of granite.

No matter, they manage to entertain me – what more can you ask from sculpture?

    The three objects are actually represent ancient Maori navigational tools – and they are made by New Zealand Artist Brett Graham. Apparently the three shapes represent a bird’s head, a Waka, and an altar, though I still think they look like a hairdryer, a caveman’s club, and a banana!!
