Hualien International Sculpture Festival

Nigel Scanlon's sculpture, a half-bow of a canoe, stands as a testament to his deep respect for his Māori heritage and its rich history. This piece, prominently featured at the 2009 Hualien International Sculpture Festival, uses cool color tones to paint a beautiful pattern across its stone surface. The canoe is more than just a monument; it symbolizes the journey of Scanlon's ancestors across the Pacific Ocean to New Zealand.
