Pou Whakamaharatanga mo Maui tikitiki a Taranga

Standing at 6.4m tall, Pou Whakamaharatanga mo Maui tikitiki a Taranga by Professor Robert Jahnke towers over the Logan Campbell Yard in front of the ASB Waterfront Theatre in Wynyard Quarter.

Formworks helped to realise the sculpture, taking the initial concept sketches through to a fully detailed CAD model which was used for pre-production renders and production. It is made from layered corten steel and hand carved laminated totara.

The sculpture serves as a focal point for powhiri and other ceremonial events at the theatre.
