Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
After the devastating 22 February 2011 earthquake, which hit Christchurch New Zealand, the iconic Christchurch Cathedral was damaged. This beautiful building is the heart of the C.B.D and despite subsequent damage will hopefully be returned to its former glory. The title of this painting refers to the pre-quake annual chiming of the bells to herald the return of the Godwits, and celebrate their epic migration.
