Solace in the Wind – a Wellington, public art, favourite sculpture

Once voted Wellington’s favourite sculpture, Solace in the Wind, by Max Patte is often ‘dressed’ for the season or event.

It’s a popular spot for photos – perhaps people like to be pictured with a naked statue!

  1. Interesting Heather. I have walked past several times. I have two days in Wellington in February. 20th and part of 21st. Then flying Wellington to Canberra. Best wishes for the festive season.
