The stunning carved Steinway

Taken at NG Cafe


  1. Stunning is certainly the right word here!

  2. It looks more like enamelled cast iron to me and rather bizarre.

  3. I thought that too GB - such intense and shiny paint, but it is a real piano, and it is carved... The bulls are cast iron - and so are the pianos they sit on - two tonnes for each exhibit, brought back from Paris and Venice to NZ where the sculptor lives and works here in ChCh at the University.
    They are incredibly impressive up close - huge life size pondering beasts.
    I guess "Art" takes many forms!


Comments welcome....always love to hear what you think!
