Mural remains at Kingsland


I'm sure this used to be a much larger mural, taking up the whole wall between New North Road and the railway line, a bush scene like this. It hasn't been a large mural for some time, anyway. Hard to photograph because it's also part of a carpark, but I hope you can get the gist from these photos today. According to the NZ Card Index, it was originally an 8m by 10m mural, completed 1985 by Shirley Smith and three students from a job search programme for the Native Forest Action Council (name change 1988 to Maruia Society, name change 1999 to the Ecologic Foundation).

I wonder if anyone realises what the mural is about, anymore?

  1. Pity it's shrunk but the remnant is very beautiful.
