Kahukura is based on what the inside of a Kōura (crayfish) looks like. The log was struck by lightning in the forest the back of the sculpture keeps this burnt look.
Davey created this sculpture to the memory of his daughter who had passed away. The pole is very special to me. It is an honour to have it placed in the Youth Park, where the play and laughter of children will be with my daughter's spirit every day. - Davey McGhie
