Standing Tall #6

There's a bit of a story behind this one. Back in 2013, structural engineer Helen Trappitt worked alongside architect Amiria Kiddle to paint the Intersection Point mural on the side of the Christchurch Central Police Station, as you see here:

The mural was part of a general "brighten up the city" campaign in the wake of the devastation created by the earthquakes, though the building is now scheduled for demolition. So this Point Blank giraffe has been painted as a reflection and (soon-to-be) legacy of the police station mural, currently positioned just across the road from its inspiration.
