Nga Korerorero ... #26
Nga Korerorero Silvia Salgado’s sculpture in the Midland Park, Wellington. Nga Korerorero (maori)means "Ongoing Talk". The sculptured fountain is bronze, steel, concrete on slate tiles.
It was placed in Wellington’s Midland Park, Lambton Quay in 1996. Silvia Salgado is a Colombian artist who came to New Zealand in 1992 to lecture in design at Wellington Polytechnic. Her sculpture represents communication and relationships among friends and families.
It is now June and a cool day (11 deg C) so there are not so many people sitting in the park having lunch. During the summer months you can't move in this popular inner city spot during the lunch hour.
