A massive rare stone extracted from a South Island mountain and carved by sculptor Gill Gatfield, is attracting intense international interest at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. Gill calls her monumental sculpture "Zealandia". It's a 2.3 metre high X-shaped figure weighing in at one and a half tonnes, and in January it was still nestled in a South Island mountain range.
