Arrowtown-based jeweller Sir Michael Hill has another arresting artwork on his private golf course.
Golfers teeing off on the first hole at The Hills are greeted by a three-metre high painted bronze sculpture of an old man seated on a three-legged travelling stool.
The work, The Seated Man, is by renowned English sculptor Sean Henry, who flew to New Zealand last weekend to find a location for his work.
"He likes to place his work somewhere where there's a bit of time between you seeing it and getting to it,.'' Sir Michael said.
"What I particularly like is the way the colours just blend so beautifully into the landscape.''
Mr Henry said the man was anonymous, like almost all his figures.
