Pictures from my Christchurch trip
Sculpture outside the theatre. Didn't manage to get the sculptor's name, but I will.
Christchurch Botanic Gardens.
Beautiful sculpture about dyslexia made by Richard Taylor.
Sign under a hook in a toilet cubicle in the Arts Center. It says "For security reasons, please DO NOT hang personal belongings, including bags, on this hook. Thank you. " Why didn't they just remove the hook?
The bust of my homeboy, Julius Von Haast, in the Museum.
Christchurch Museum. My Mum loved this part. I think it was part of the 'original' (?) museum. The floor of the gallery was alarmingly creaky, but had a beautiful display of costumes. Mum and I drooled over the embroidered waistcoats. Makes me want to get into embroidery again, but I don't need another hobby.
