Len Lye is the creator of this wind wand who was born in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1901.

As night settles in around New Plymouth, New Zealand the wand shows off its true magic as a soft red glow is emitted from a light at the top of the wind wand. A majority of the work done by the artist, Len Lye, can now be found at the Govett Brewster Art Gallery in New Plymouth.
