Chalice Sculpture Reviews
In cathedral square right next to old cathedral . One of many interesting sculptures around the city more »
Nice sculpture, something to look at when travelling through the square. Good artistic touch right in the centre of the city. No need for a special trip as you'll come across it if in the city. more »
Chalice is a large-scale sculpture on display at Cathedral Square in the town centre. This is the work of Neil Dawson and was installed in 2001 for the 150th anniversary of the founding of Christchurch. This is a nearly metre tall steel sculpture, the shape of a inverted cone which appears in the form of a solid base, changing into connecting weave of plants which tower upward into the sky. It is a creative monument design that is attractive to see at Cathedral Square. The Chalice is nice to see during the day but is also worth passing by after dark when it is lit up with floodlights. We enjoyed seeing this monument at both times.
I mean it’s a big chalice. Can’t drink out of it, holes all through it. Over all you remain parched.
