Dinornis Maximus is a prominent 11 metre tall wind-activated kinetic sculpture. The artwork forms a striking gateway on the northern edge of Woden Town Centre. The sculpture uses fully-sealed rolling bearing systems designed for longevity and environmental resilience to create "a wind powered ballet in the sky". In describing his artworks New Zealand artist Phil Price says he seeks a "combination of movement that provides a flow and a dance".
