A Dowse Led project -Council erected hoardings around the now demolished (Due to earthquake risk) Olympic Pool site in Naenae. This was a temporary measure to give the community something worth viewing while the new pool was being designed and built. Community involvement was at the forefront of this project, and four artists where selected to work with community, and local mana whenua, to design, and paint murals for the town centre.

Subject: Past :  Inspired by a korero from Kura Moeahu. This depiction of Maui from the creation story, and how the Waiwhetu and Te Awamutu rivers were formed. The native fish come spilling forth, and the background is of Raumanuka (maunga) and the once thriving birdlife of Naenae.
