This fountain called Albatross which was created Tanya Ashken between the 1985 and 1986, sits along the waterfront of Wellington on the North Island of New Zealand. Tanya Ashken said that she has always been fascinated by the Albatross, their size and grace, and their love of the sea, and she wanted to dedicate this sculpture to the birds before they disappear from our planet forever.

Wellington has a number of sculptures like this around the city and this one can be found in Frank Kits Park along the waterfront and is made of ferrocement. This is a mixture of cement, sand, water and wire so that it can be molded in to shapes and then will have the ability to stay in that shape. ... continue below the picture...

... Originally this fountain was supposed to be installed in Auckland, and was commissioned to be built there, but the Wellington Sculpture Trust Project raised money for it to be built in their city, and it became the first sculpture in a series to be built for here.

The sculpture was originally going to be three abstract and somewhat unrelated shapes, built to interact with each other but also with the space around them, and still be their own separate structures. The use of water altogether connects the three pieces however, and allows the sculpture to be part of the landscape and able to stand on its own.
