Pou Tū Te Rangi by Chris Bailey (Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Hako, Ngāti Pāoa, Te Aupōuri, Irish), 2011.

This towering 2011 artwork watches over the courtyard that links The Hotel Britomart with Te Ara Tahuhu, and provides a metaphorical link between Britomart's people and the earth and sky.

These seven distinct pou watch over the courtyard of The Pavilions and are visible from Tuawhiti Lane outside The Hotel Britomart. The work’s title translates as ‘standing posts reaching for the heavens’, and emphasises the connections between humanity, earth and sky.
