This mural is able to be seen at the entrance to the Foxton estuary, only a stone's throw from wher the godwit/kuaka, the subject of this painting, departs from each year to Alaska. Its a kind of environmental kaitiaki (guardian) painting

His dad went that night-a poem by Duncan Hill

His dad went that night

Neurological plasticity;
The superfluid ghost-busted
Priests and protests
populate the view
as light dies on the screen
and nurses panic
to save the dwindling waveform

Now we know everything
we can sit in stunned silence
as Michelangelo after Michelangelo
dive to their deaths off a hundred
replayed cliffs

I saw you in the Sallies shop:
Lacrimosa with the outrageous prints
draped like palettes
over your arm,
the unknown sunken boy
slightly back from his mother in silent protest
preparing for the dash of a man, away.
His quest: the shoot seeks the light
much like his dad went that night

And the searching sun
finds the crack
turns on the spherical earths’
chased horizons
Dischordant bungees umbilical him
