Palmerston North's newest sculpture was partly installed  in Cuba St yesterday.

The Giants Among Us, by Konstantin Dimopoulos, is a two-stage work made of bright, slender fibreglass rods that sway softly in the breeze, or whip wildly in the wind.

Clever lighting will seem to set them afire at night.

The sculpture is the latest funded by the Palmerston North Public Sculpture Trust; the seventh to be installed in the city.

Tomorrow, Dimopoulos will install the other part of the work across Cuba St.

The installation work is timed to be in sync with Palmerston North City Council work to the intersection of Cuba, George and Taonui streets.

Should Palmerston North's old police station be a heritage building?

Yes, the building has historical value and must be preserved.

No, it's an eyesore and should be replaced with something better.

Only if the building gets a proper restoration.
