Quake-hit sculpture on display again

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/12/2016

A sculpture in a Christchurch garden that fell down a cliff in an earthquake is on display again.

The seven-metre steel sculpture Reflect by Graham Bennett had stood on the edge of Philip Carter's cliff-top garden at Clifton near Sumner since 2010.

On June 13, 2011 the cliff edge, sculpture and parts of Mr Carter's house fell down a rock face in a magnitude 6.3 quake.

The sculpture has now been rescued from the rubble and is on display in Canterbury Museum's exhibition Quake City.

Museum Director Anthony Wright says he's very pleased to have the work installed in Quake City.

Broken and mangled by the impact of the earthquake, the sculpture now rests at an angle on a steel plinth created for it by Bennett.

Quake City is at 99 Cashel Street in Re:START Mall.
