Cable Bay sealife sculptures



Cable Bay also known as Taipa in Northland, NZ is just absolutely stunning. We stopped off here on our road trip to check out this beach and couldn't help but stop and admire these sculptures for sale on the grass verge.


These fish, whales, dolphins and other sea creatures are made from various types of wood and include pieces of paua shell for eyes and other decorations.


The young man who was selling them owns his own gypsy type truck and looked like a bit of a hobo but honestly those are the best type of people to meet in life.


Let me tell you I was very very tempted to buy some. They were ranging from $50nzd to $500nzd and they would've looked great on a wall in our apartment but sadly all of our money was destined to be spent on petrol and living expenses while we were up there.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday for this one :-)

  6. One or two of those fish look good enough to eat! The young entrepreneur should do well.

  7. Those are beautiful carvings. I wonder if the seller makes it to the gypsy fair that travels around New Zealand?

  8. Why on the wall and not in a glass tank or bowl? I certainly would have been tempted to buy, too.

  10. I find such talent remarkable: probably because I have no ability of that sort whatsoever. Cable Bay is, like so many places on that coast, truly beautiful.
