Kitsch'n kitscher

Which to pick? The big hen - a giant topiary chicken that could have laid the Moeraki boulders - or the ten foot leaping trout in realistic gleaming fibreglass? Oamaru's emblem is far more tasteful: they quarry a beautiful white limestone there and it's a column and ornate capitol emerging from a big block of stone. The stone phoenix straddling the globe outside the art centre is pretty cute too.
