Titipounamu – A Necklace With Lost Gems
Titipounamu joins the long series of Bing Dawe’s past works which come under the collective title A Landscape With Too Many Holes. In this work Bing Dawe expresses a balance between the lament at the loss of our birds and forests, and a celebration of those still remaining. Bing has created a necklace of titipounamu, the tiny endemic rifleman that he likens to a precious gem. Bing has exhibited at all five Sculpture in the Gardens exhibitions.
