Well-known Alexandra identity Bill Tinker, Otago Goldpanning Champion, was keen to help Brian keep history alive with his artwork. He was originally photographed panning on the banks of the Clutha, for one of a series of pen & ink drawings on early days in New Zealand, which then inspired this detailed sculpture. You can see the fine balance, muscle tension and concentration as he searches for specks of colour in the bottom of the pan.
