I go for a walk frequently on some hilly, private rural land in Nelson North. Recently the landowners were surprised to find a small statue and a couple of unusual beer bottles at an old skid site on their steep hillside property. More recently, a 'crop-circle' type of image appeared next to the gnome, created from firewood. I was walking in the area today and saw these mysterious objects myself, so I took photos.
There is no public access close to this location... the exact locality of which has to remain a secret (unless the owners want to post it here themselves).
No unusual traffic has been seen in the area and, as far as I am aware, there have been no recent reports of unidentified aerial phenomena. Nobody I've spoken to seems to know where the statue came from... or who screwed it securely to the log it is standing on.
The image created from firewood is intriguing. It appears to be a primitive, yet artistically pleasing, representation of a humanoid, obviously a male one. One theory for its presence suggests that it is a signal to the sky people from the secretive inhabitants of the local scrublands.... perhaps showing a rendezvous point. I favour the hypothesis that it is part of a fertility or potency ritual initiated by one of the locals as there don't seem to be many pregnant women in the immediate neighbourhood.
It would be great if anybody can throw any further light on these unusual objects.
