Evolution on plinth 01

Evolution is a 4 tonne bronze sculpture showing the evolution of one of the world's oldest sports, archery, from Roman times, through the Imperial era to contemporary.

It has been gifted to our city by the Beijing Olympic Sculpture committee and China's Ministry of Culture, who also chose Gisborne as one of only 12 cities around the world outside China to host the collection of small sculptures to commemorate the Beijing Olympic Games.   

The sculpture was unveiled on its plinth at Marina Park on Friday 8 October 2010.
