Located in north Auckland, the Gibbs Farm is home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring sculptures. Sitting on the highest point of the property, Horizons by Neil Dawson was one of the first pieces to be commissioned by the farm. The metal sculpture is an impressive 15 meters high and 36 meters long. Its distinct Trompe-l’œil style gives it a slightly cartoonish appearance when viewed from a far. This quality is fitting as Horizons is the only sculpture on the farm that can be viewed from the road. Passersby look over to see what appears to a be a giant piece of paper, that, having been tossed about by the wind, has now delicately landed atop a nearby hill and is waiting for the next gust to carry it on.
