ADVERSITY

This delightful sculpture by Whanganui artist Joan Bullock Morrell is called Protection in Adversity, and has certainly suffered some adversity itself.  It was first made in concrete in 1972 for Moutoa Gardens (Pākaitore), and was destroyed in 1995 during the occupation of the park.  The statue was recommissioned in 2003 and Morrell had it cast in bronze.
