Fantastic to see Sarosh Mulla’s Claude Glass installed at Waikereru, reflecting Motukeo. (A scaled up version of a convex obsidian mirror named after the 18C landscape artist Claude Lorraine). Artists used these to reflect and shrink a landscape, painting it from the reflection, facing away from the scene.
A haven for native birds, plants and animals.
