Today at Enrich@ILT, Caleb, Robbie Theo and I got to see some carvings at the Museum. The giant Oamaru stone sculptures carvings were being created for an exhibition by Oti Murray at the Southland Museum.
The sculptures looked like faces and body parts of a taniwha. Each part was made separately and will be combined when all the pieces were finished. We each took a turn at using the chisel and wooden hammer (mallet). It was pretty tricky as you needed to hit the chisel really hard and keep a firm grasp on it too. We took photos and videos of our experience. These sculptures will be displayed at the Museum at the end of the month. By Zephyr Jackson
