Interestingly i remember the outcry when the Peacock fountain was renovated and reinstalled in the Christchurch Botanic gardens a few years back...original colours and people hated it..i LOVE it has such character. 
There's several photos of this gorgeous fountain on the 'net, including the link Sandy provided to Te Ara.


  1. The fountain looks pretty!
    People forget that, while the photos may have been in dull sepia tones, real life in the past actually consisted of brightness and colour.
