Caption

The gateway, 'An Artist's Lament to His Beach', was erected at Papamoa Beach by local artist Peter Cramond after the Rena disaster in 2011. Depicted are dead birds made of clay nailed to the gateway and a small sculpted head of the artist alongside. The gateway managed to survive over the Summer of 2011-12 but in another act of stupidity unthinking vandals destroyed a meaningful work that had a timely message for all New Zealanders.
