Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

An art­work at Pataka is mi­nus its ‘‘sword’’ thanks to a brazen thief.

Porirua po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion about a man who took the plas­tic let­ter opener, made to look like a sword, from the Apoc­a­lypse Van­i­tas se­ries by artist Niki Hast­ings-McFall late on March 19.

He walked out of the Porirua gallery with the let­ter opener. The piece, show­ing a hu­man form skele­ton rid­ing a skelton an­i­mal while car­ry­ing a sword and shield, is part of Hast­ings-McFall’s In Flyte ex­hi­bi­tion.

It was the first theft from Pataka. Porirua City Coun­cil spokes­woman Bar­bara Ber­cic said the plas­tic let­ter opener was 10cm long.
