Virginia King awarded the commission for the Katherine Mansfield Sculpture for Wellington
New Zealand's greatest writer, Katherine Mansfield, is to have
her position in world literature further recognised with a
sculpture in her home city of Wellington. The Mayor of
Wellington, Kerry Prendergast, says the sculpture will both
recognise one of the city's most celebrated citizens and reinforce
the cultural depth and history of the Capital.
"She influenced a fundamental shift in the way stories are told
and is recognised as one of the world's leading modernist writers.
This tribute from the City will ensure that her recognition not
only continues, but grows."
The project is a three-way venture between Wellington City
Council, the Katherine Mansfield Society and Wellington Sculpture
