Have you seen the new sculpture in town?

Alice Angeloni Reporter from Marlborough Express

A new sculpture has been turning 'heads' in central Blenheim.
The large stone hand, holding a $1 coin with an upside-down kiwi, is called 'Heads Nor Tails'.
It was created by Otago artist Josh Olley and donated to the Millennium Public Art Gallery by a local family, who wanted to remain anonymous.
What do you make of the new artwork?

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.
