Photographer's Note

Holy Trinity Cathedral, Parnell, Auckland.
The main façade hints at features of the elevation of the older wooden cathedral just visible behind it
Holy Trinity Cathedral is an Anglican place of worship situated in Parnell, a residential suburb of Auckland.
Today the Diocese of Auckland is one of seven dioceses of the Tikanga Pakeha (pakeha culture) stream of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.

he Cathedral is renowned for its modern stained glass, including the unique window featuring a Polynesian Christ with vividly coloured Pacific motifs. A set of eighteen windows along the sides of the Nave, designed by Robert Ellis and Shane Cotton and dedicated in 2004, tell the Christian story using a combination of traditional and Polynesian designs.

The overall design of the cathedral has been described as the world's only example of the "Pacific Gothic" style.

The 2013 Census recorded a total of 295,941 people from 57 distinct Pacific groups living in New Zealand. The majority (194,958 people or 66 percent) lived in Auckland.

I found this modern glass window interesting.
