#1532 ... Multi-purpose Transport
Self powered transport that is also very multi-purpose ... and gives you a work out. On the right hand side of the image ... Solace in the Wind.
This is a 2 metre high bronze cast of a man leaning forward into a good old Wellington gale perched on the edge of Wellington's spectacular waterfront. Sculptured by Max Patte it is said that he stood in this exact spot when he'd been going through a bad patch. The view and feel of the wind soothed his soul and inspired him to create Solace in the Wind.
