Icarus Series Sculpture Trail Concept


Max’s sculptures create points of real interest inside and outside our home - for us, for visitors, and for people walking along the Te Araroa trail. Living with these beautiful sculptures enhances our enjoyment of our home and emphasizes its connection both to the landscape and to the birds that live in it, with a special bow to the pīwakawaka.
