Kereru by Kitchener Street

Spotted this sculpture while in the city yesterday, at the corner of Wellesley and Kitchener Streets. I can't find any details about it yet online (if anyone knows something, let me know and I'll do an update).

Update 21 October 2010: There you go. Eventually, something crops up.
Phoebe Falconer's column for the NZ Herald included info about this sculpture today. "The name of the sculpture is Woodpigeon on a Circle, it's made of cast bronze, and stands almost 2.5m high. The artist is Paul Dibble, and more of his work is on display at the Gow Langsford Gallery in Lorne St until October 30. The gallery put the woodpigeon on the corner to advertise the exhibition."

Well, maybe not completely correct. My original post was dated in February this year, whiile his "Bird's Eye View" exhibition due to end October 30 began on the 6 October. A hang of a long time to advertise an exhibition, I'd have thought. But at least yes, the wood pigeon is by Paul Dibble.
