Fern Sculpture in Queenstown

This sculpture, entitled Icon, is by Paul Dibble. Commissioned by Aspiring Arts  and Culture Trust in 2009. It stands near the north entrance to the Queenstown  Gardens. The silver fern is a popular motif associated with New Zealand. Not  only is it on the one dollar coin, but also used by a number of national sports  teams such as the Cricket team and of course the All Blacks rugby team.
