"Gateway," a 75-foot-high monument in New Zealand


Gateway, a 75-foot-high monument in New Zealand.

New Zealand artist Chris Booth built “Gateway,” the 75-foot-high monument that’s the subject of October’s photo, between 1986 and 1990. Since then, the two columns of rock, “joined” by an arch of water, have stood sentinel at one of the entrances of Albert Park in central Auckland, New Zealand.

One art critic said that Booth “creates memorable works that sit respectfully in the landscape.”

Two readers sent in correct answers by the deadline, and BETH POWELL of Eureka, California, won the drawing. We thank Sharon VanDewark of San Diego, California, for contributing the photo.
