Flame trees and shed murals


Every now and again when we are driving if I see something interesting I ask the other half to pull over so I can take photos then research it when we get home.


This one was very bright and colourful. According to the sign that was on the fence a small group of local owners consulted other people in the community and asked artist Chris Wilkie to paint a mural on the outside.


This is his version of the history and landscapes of the Purerua Peninsula through the achievement of the winning Ngati Rehia Waka Ama team in the 2013 national regatta.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday.

The artist did a super job Amy, eye-catching for sure ✨
