The Mysterious Sculptures of Grey Lynn Park in Auckland, New Zealand
The first time I walked through Grey Lynn Park in Auckland, I was mesmerized by an incredible group of sculptures:
The people in the sculptures seemed so natural and comfortable on that grass - like three friends just hanging out on a nice day. I wanted to join them in that open spot.
I haven't been able to find more information on these particular sculptures, but the reason they captivated me at first glance, is because they look like indigenous people - perhaps the New Zealand Maori. Yet, instead of being pictured as violent warriors - the imagery I'm so used to for any type of indigenous people - they're just a few friends casually hanging out in a park. Unfortunately, that is an unusual and unexpected image to me.
