Nigel came across this splendid bull sculpture in a field by the road when he was in the South Catlins on a work trip recently. The bull is life-size or bigger and constructed in Corten steel. In a conversation with the owners Nigel found the bull provides more than just artistic interest in a farm field. The farm homestead is on the opposite side of the road, visible to passing traffic. The unmissable bull provides a distraction for passers-by to divert their attention from the house. The bull can also be seen from inside the house. He was a post-Covid addition to the farm and Corten steel was already in very short supply in NZ at the time he was made. Nigel expects the colour of the sculpture to darken over the next decade due to natural weathering. The Catlins, Southland, New Zealand.
