Wellington Harbour can be an extremely windy place. This sculpture by the British sculptor, Max Patte, is a 2 meter high figure leaning into the wind, with eyes closed and arms held back, it´s bracing itself against, but also relaxing into it. The site on which the figure stands was one of great significance for Max Patte, he had tried the pose himself and says it was a comfort to him in difficult times.
