The Wellington Sculpture Trust unveiled Peter Trevelyan’s Mimetic Brotherhood outside Te Papa on Wednesday. A kinetic sculpture—which changes thanks to hydraulics—it replaces Green Islands by Regan Gentry, which had stood at the same location until last month.
   Trust chairman Neil Plimmer said of the rotating sculptures, ‘It would be for the Southern Hemisphere at least the counterpart of the famous sculpture rotation on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, London—which currently features the New Zealand war hero Sir Keith Parks.’
   Trevalyan was the centre of attention at the function that followed the unveiling, attended by luminaries including Mayor Kerry Prendergast and Dr Claudia Orange.
