The Chainlink Sculpture

Lee Bay – Stewart Island, New Zealand

On the North side of Stewart Island is Lee Bay where you’ll find the gateway to the Rakiura National Park and a terrific sculpture. The walk/tramp through the Rakiura National Park is 32 kilometers, it takes 3 days and and everyone we talked to on Stewart Island said it was an amazing walk to do, and it’s actually listed on the ‘ten great walks of New Zealand’. At the gateway to the Park is a giant Chainlink sculpture which symbolises the anchor chain of the Maori legend Māui who, fished up Te Wai Pounamu (the South Island) and anchored it with Rakiura (Stewart Island). As far as sculptures go, it’s kinda cool.
