A Pacific poppy. An outstretched hand. An abstract painting. Each of these art works represents a New Zealander who served in the First World War.

Last year, artist Max Gimblett made 7,000 of these to hang on the exterior walls of St David’s soldiers’ memorial church in Auckland. For three months, the church stood as a glimmering message of peace and remembrance.

Thousands of New Zealanders have since bought the weathered art works. They now hang in homes from Wellington to London and Singapore – a personal link with the past.
