Fern were conceived to refer to both the geographic location and the proximity of the Manukau and Waitemata Harbours. Feather, a six-metre work, is a stylized feather of a seabird, as a symbol of Pacific migration and the many nationalities that live in Manukau City. Fern, the five-metre, stylized fern frond, is a traditional symbol of the land and of peace and welcome.
