Gilmour Reserve Sculpture, Waihi

This is a pictorial of the development of a sculpture which will flank the entranceway to Gilmour Reserve and the lake in Waihi. Commissioned by the Hauraki District Council, the project will take 6 months to complete. One side of the entrance will depict the "Legend of The Ohinemuri River and the Taniwha" and the other will have a heritage theme with the mine rake train, Cornish pumphouse and a period settler family.
