Solar light art columns aid pedestrian safety and wayfinding around Cathedral Square, and during the day their bright colours add to vibrancy.
Renowned artist and carver Fayne Robinson designed two columns to mark each end of Westpac Lane. His designs represent day and night and the flora and fauna that once inhabited the city.
Local artist Tahu Robinson designed two additional columns which were installed at the southern end of Press Lane, and in north Cathedral Square.
His designs reference important Māori landscapes and cultural practices. He highlights the connections between new and old, and links from Tuahiwi to the Christ Church Cathedral.
