The reinstallation of the Zephyrometer wind sculpture, after scheduled maintenance and repairs, April 10–11, 2014, eleven years after it installed on the Evans Bay foreshore site. Two days of the work involved to reinstall the sculpture are chronicled in this slideshow of Phil and his highly skilled employees and sub-contractors at work.

Zephyrometer wind sculpture reinstallation

Sculpture artist Phil Price at Evans Bay, April 2014.

The sculpture gets a real workout from Wellington’s winds, but soon after the refurbished work was reinstalled on August 14, 2014 it was dramatically struck by lightning, but not defeated.
