Hi! Yes, there is a shallow pool in the forecourt to the main art gallery entrance.

Thanks for that explanation. Something tells me it wasn't quite designed for that purpose but a few very imaginative folks decided to work with what they had, incorporating it into the creative process; nice!

I think that is absolutely correct. Being summer here, with the shallow pool being lined in dark stone, the water was relatively warm - I know 'cos I got splashed a fair bit taking the photos!

The creative dance was based on Maori Kapa Haka and Haka moves. The Haka is a traditional expression of respect or a challenge. It is displayed to potential foes before a conflict but also shows respect (Mana) to people of note (including opponents), such as when someone dies, or when people of note are greeted. The NZ military, police and border security all have to learn the Haka as part of their training, most school children learn it as well. I have seen the border personnel shut down their booths, come out, and do a Haka when respected people, such as successful sports-persons, arrive from overseas. It is certainly common for Haka to be performed to honour the dead.

During the Haka men will strike warlike poses and make gestures as if to indicated combat, while women will come from behind and through their ranks to strike poses like the one you see - with eyes open wide to show the whites.

Nicely done - I really like what's going in with your candle and shadow interaction.

I wonder how it would look with a tighter crop on just THAT aspect? Right now the top border and some of the bottom gives it real world context. You have a rough idea what you're looking at. If you removed those "clues" it would give it more of an abstract mysterious atmosphere. Just a thought....;-)a

Thank you. Yes, I tried different crops, but keep coming back to this aspect ratio. I think it comes down to personal taste and style in the end.
