  • This monument has a brutal, military functionality about it. It's only on closer inspection that the finer detail is apparent. Simple and stark while at the same time adorned with cultural references....  more »
  • There is an odd section of Hyde Park, that is actually closer to Green Park, that is surrounded by traffic, on three major streets, which encircle it. We spent an afternoon exploring this area, and di...  more »

  • Remarkable Memorial and worth closer examination if you are in the area.
  • I really love this memorial, from the distance or walking among the standards. Each standard is formed from two intersecting plates of bronze and, when seen from above and afar, the sculptures appear like a series of crosses hanging in the air.
  • Wonderful day
  • This is a memorial to the war dead of New Zealand both World Wars WW1 and WWII The official name is "Southern Stand" and erected in 2006. Designed by architect John Hardwick-Smith & sculptor Paul Dibble, who are both from New Zealand. There are 16 bronzes in all and each one has either some text or symbols or something relevant to this memorial. There were some derogatory comments about the design of this memorial. I really think it has lovely shape and form and has an artistic "form" which changes whether it be sunny, cloudy or whatever the weather. Sometimes to be over critical of such a subject when there is such meaning and depth behind the memorial of people who lost their lives in warfare and this has been put there as a constant reminder to us all to remember "the fallen" Go there admire it and please remember all the young lives, cut so short which this memorial represents.
  • Strange,rather ugly...
