Designed by Havelock North artist David Trubridge, this contemporary sculpture is inspired by the ecliptic - an astronomical term referring to the great circle on the celestial sphere representing the apparent annual path of the sun relative to the stars.
The ecliptic is designed to be "read" in conjunction with a rock marker.
Ecliptic Artist David Trubridge. Placed here by the Napier City Council Millennium subcommittee to mark the beginning of the third Millennium.
To find the point where the sun rose at the start of the Millennium, follow a line from this rock through the centre of the arch to the horizon.
