This artwork by Laurie Karasek of the Ilam School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury, was chosen from entries in a public competition. The sculpture was paid for by a generous gift from Sir Lew and Lady Harris of Brooklands Station, Hawke's Bay.
The sculptor described the work as a bio-morphic form, floating like a giant water lily.
Installed with internal and external underwater lighting, its random sequencing produced fascinating effects after dusk. However, persistent vandalism and theft resulted in the lighting system being removed.
