‘Yantra for Mahana’ sculpture

The sculpture ‘Yantra for Mahana’ by Marté Szirmay stands at the entrance to the Woollaston Estates winery at Mahana in the Moutere hills. At 7.5 metres tall and constructed from over 40 tonnes of steel, the sculpture is one of many in the vineyard grounds. One of the owners of the winery, Philip Woollaston, is the son of Nelson’s most famous artist, Toss Woollaston.
