Hamilton's getting some new public art, which is great, but we're not exactly leading the world on that front.

This photo from 1979 shows rock carvers, from left, Greg Whakataka, Fred Clamp and Jonathan Randell working on rock art carvings at Mine Bay at Lake Taupo.

The work was sponsored by the QEII Arts Council and since they were completed the carvings have become a popular tourist attraction.

We love how there's not a high-vis vest, hard hat or OSH inspector in sight, they're working in bare feet and one of them's even wearing Speedos. Now that's class.
