Booth at Brick Bay

Te Waimate, is inspired by the branches and trunks of Nikau, Kahikatea and Kauri. Standing at a vertical height of 6.5 metres, the stacked basalt stones were sourced from Waimate. Placed among soaring nikau and cabbage trees, Te Waimate is a further iteration of an iconic series.

Nikau II is sculpted from crystallised sandstone, with a canopy of woven grey and white stones. This cloak-like effect of woven stones may be seen on a larger scale in the Earth Blanket at the entrance to the Hamilton Gardens.

Booth is well known for his Rainbow Warrior Memorial in Matauri Bay, Northland and Gateway in Victoria Street, Auckland.He has a true international reputation with works in several European countries, North America and Australia, both as public and private commissions. His work may be seen at the world's most prestigious sculpture parks such as Storm King Arts Center in New York and Kroller Muller in The Netherlands.

This is a rare opportunity to admire these accomplished works.
