Haier Big Hoot
ABOUT THE TRAIL
The Haier Big Hoot is a free public art trail featuring 47 giant
Owl sculptures (1.65m tall). Each Owl has been turned into a bespoke
piece of art by a Kiwi or International artist, with works by Dick
Frizzell, Jeff Thomson, Greer Clayton, Flox, Weilun Ha, Peata Larkin,
Grace Wright, Jessica Pearless, and more. Joining the giant owls are 60
owlets (90cm) – many designed by Auckland school students.
From Saturday 03 March, 2018, the Owls will be displayed for nine
weeks in public spaces, parks, malls and libraries across Auckland. At
the end of the trail the Owls will be auctioned to fundraise for Child
In some cultures, the owl is a harbinger of death. http://www.pauldfrost.co.uk/intro_o2.html
owl came to our house when Mum was pregnant with my younger brother.
Grand Ma was visiting us, we asked Dad to catch it. Dad did, but
released it, he didn't want Grand Ma to nag about the bad luck..
