Boulders

Because The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa was open on Good Friday, I took the opportunity to revisit “Brian Brake: Lens on the World” (23 Oct 2010 – 8 May 2011) — a marvellous exhibition of the work of New Zealand’s most renowned international photographer.

The extensive forecourt to Te Papa features three large boulders, which “symbolise [the museum’s] commitment to New Zealand’s land and people.”  

The image here is a detail of the middle stone, which represents Papatūānuku (Earth Mother).
