Along Taupo's waterfront is this sculpture named "Defining Horizons" by Graham Bennett. Made from a combination of stainless steel, Cor-ten and mild steels it symbolises journeys of discovery in New Zealand.
The artist said he wants viewers to make their own interpretations of the sculpture, but for him it has many overlapping ideas.
He said "I was thinking of Polynesian migration, Cook's voyage of discovery and families ancestral journeys, but it could be interpreted as any form of way-finding".
The upper components of it which point in different directions symbolise the longitudinal divisions of the globe which divide the Pacific Ocean and the latitudinal divisions inspired the ribs which give it a nautical feel.
Linking up with Skywatch Friday.
