Specimen Pohutukawa (2018)

Artist: Jim Wheeler
Year: 2018
Materials: Bronze
Dimensions: 385 x 200 x 80mm

A call to arms against an enemy!  After hearing about the threat of Myrtle rust disease against Pohutukawa a terrible thought came to mind. Will future generations need museum displays to learn about the “vanished Christmas tree”? Will Pohutukawa leaves be featured like extinct insects mounted on walls? New Zealand’s dinosaur-era forests are unique amongst world ecosystems and must be protected!
