Angel Wings has been described by New Zealand sculptor, Phil Price as a celebration of being alive. “It brings together the enjoyment of being outside in the environment, movement and colour – all the simple things,” he says. The aerodynamic wings move in response to the wind. The 10 metre tall sculpture uses fully-sealed rolling bearing systems designed for longevity and environmental resilience.
