Peter Majendie sits among the 185 white chairs he prepared and unveiled last night to commemorate the victims of the Christchurch earthquake which killed 185 people a year ago yesterday.

The mix of chairs will sit on freshly laid lawn where the demolished Oxford Terrace Baptist Church once stood. The chairs represent the unique personalities of the victims.

The installation, which will stay in place for a week, is called Reflection of Loss of Lives, Livelihoods and Living in Neighbourhood.
