Stairway to Heaven carving from Keno Sculpture in Wellington

Very honoured to be asked again by the Salvation Army for a sculpture to greet visitors, this time, in the new Hope Centre opened in Newtown last Saturday. The design reflected "ascension" part of a journey upward, reaching higher. I wanted straight edges and angles to contrast with the smooth curves and selected an old and well known tukutuku pattern called Poutama or "The Stairway to Heaven". It was the perfect fit in more ways than one.
