Art, Architecture, or Bad Design? – Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu

After the earthquake in Christchurch, the city council decided to have a new museum built. As you can see, it is a very beautiful modern building. A hand with a face on it was placed on the roof as part of an exhibit. It looked a bit odd to me, but our taxi driver told us the face is a self-portrait of the artist. Like the Mona Lisa?

By sculptor Graham Bennett and architect David Cole.
