Aotearoa Mural Recently Facelifted























Most anyone, the first time, they travel around the Quay onwards in a southerly direction to Tahunanui take a second look at this fabulous mural.

Originally painted around 1984, the toll from the elements was starting to show.



















It was recently repainted, and the original artist, Chris Finlayson, was recommissioned to do it all over again.

This time though Chris sought assistance from the local community, and dozens signed on to help, in what Chris described to the Nelson Mail as being like a "paint-by-numbers working bee for adults."
