Horizons (1994), it is, instead, a 15 x 10 x 36m (49.2 x 32.8 x 118.11ft) welded and painted steel sculpture by New Zealand-based artist Neil Dawson.
Gibbs Farm, the Auckland site of a pretty remarkable sculpture collection, Dawson's work is situated on one of the highest points of the property, allowing it to be seen from the road. As the Gibbs Farm website explains, "This seems fitting given the way the tromp l’oeil character of the work
is suggestive of a giant piece of corrugated iron that might have blown
in from a collapsed water tank on some distant farm, only to rest
precariously until the next gale lifts it into the air again." If I ever visit New Zealand, Gibbs Farm is definitely going to be a must-see for me.
