This kiwi sculpture is located in a kiwifruit orchard in Te Puke, Bay of Plenty, NZ. it stands about the height of a person.
The kiwi is a native New Zealand flightless bird which exists in wild bushland and is rarely visible except in zoos or special displays. It is nocturnal.
The word 'kiwi' is also used to symbolise both the fruit of the kiwifruit, which is grown in NZ, and the people of New Zealand.
It is also one of our national emblems, the other being the native silver fern.
