Larger than Life

If you like your art monumental, be sure to visit the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū and view Ron Mueck’s spectacular work chicken / man 2019, which is on permanent display.

Mueck is renowned as one of the world’s top sculptors and for his hyper-realistic depictions of people. His bespoke sculpture took many hours of painstaking work and was created specifically for Christchurch after successful fundraising campaigns and crowd-funding.
