Lebanese Society Cedar Cone

This Cedar Cone was cast by Giltech in eight pieces from an original that was sculptured by artist Bryn Jones.  It is 1.85 metres tall, 1.25 metres wide and weighs 880kgs and was cast in leaded gunmetal.

The cone was commissioned by the Dunedin Lebanese Community as a gift to Dunedin.  It stands in the 'Cedars of Lebanon Grove' in the Dunedin Botanical Gardens and celebrates the involvement of the Lebanese Community in the success of Dunedin for well over one hundred years.
