a basket for our dream readers

Basket of dreams

Basket of Dreams sculpture, on Queenstown Hill, New Zealand

Climb 500m up Queenstown Hill, and you’ll find this amazing Millennial sculpture by Caroline Robinson called Basket of Dreams.  It’s big: people can and do climb up into it to enjoy and photograph the spectacular views.  That’s Lake Wakatipu, with the Remarkables to the left and Cecil Peak to the right, (or as the locals say, Lake Wakatip and the Remarks).

The Basket of Dream‘s plaque reads:


Basket of Dreams

The Basket’s spiral of steel follows you
to reflect
to draw inspiration from the mountains,
lake and from those who are with you,
to dream for the future.
Time flies, eternity waits,
