Wellington is blessed with many public art works but arguably the most well known is that which stands on the waterfront gazing out over the harbour.
It is called Solace of the Wind and was created by Max Pattee in 2008.
It is two meters tall and is made of iron.
It was originally lent to the city for a year but was so popular that Wellington City Council eventually purchased it for the city’s residents and visitors to enjoy time unlimited.
As a born and bred Wellingtonian I am very glad they did.
He certainly is a handsome chap!
