Object Detail

Inkjet print of original Graham Kirk painting "Halley's Comet Over Hawera". It shows a view of High Street, Hawera during an appearance of Halley's Comet. The comet is depicted as a glowing white orb with a tail of vivid reds and oranges against a starry night sky. The streetscape below is largely deserted except for one lone figure and a parked car. The metal railings of a bike stand and a bed of orange flowers run along the print's foreground. There is a bicycle in the bike stand.
