What are they building at Chaneys Corner ?

Is it that statue "Welcome to Christchurch" ? Seems rather big. :)

Wouldn't think they would put a welcome sign there. Would imagine something like that would be on the main road. But then, I know nothing

The Neil Dawson sculpture "Fanfare" is being installed there.

lyndad59, Feb 17, 7:57pm
How much did " we " pay for that ?

jambee1, Feb 17, 8:14pm
I think its going to look incredible esp at night

simba79, Feb 17, 8:58pm

Waste of money better spent elsewhere.boy racers hang out there so more to for them to wreck.

At least it won't look like a big dick as in Auckland.

I do wish councils would stick to the basics and stay away from
"Art" crap

It's like 30 metres high and weighs over 20 tonnes. Pretty hard time wrecking that.

"It was later gifted by the City of Sydney to the Christchurch City Council, . "

Wow that is beautiful. Im not one for art, but I think that is gorgeous. Christchurch needs gorgeous!

It'll be great

teddybearlover, Feb 20, 4:27am
Great idea. Put it next to the Christchurch Northern Motorway.

I can see tourists stopping on the edge of the motorway to take "photos" and trying to pull back on to the motorway.

It may have been "gifted" but who paid for it to be erected?

Great sculpture but I think as it is supposed to represent a welcome to Christchurch we should have it installed nearer to our International Airport. How many international visitors enter chch from the Northern motorway?
