Corrugated-iron art

A corrugated-iron sculpture of a shepherd stands outside the Church of the Good Shepherd on the main street of Tīrau. It is one of a number of corrugated-iron sculptures by Steven Clothier which have turned Tīrau into the corrugated-iron capital of New Zealand. The dog in the background houses the information centre.
