Horizons by Neil Dawson is a breathtaking work of art that looks more like a two-dimensional sketch than an outdoor sculpture. It is almost as though someone manipulated a photo in Photoshop. Instead, it is a 15 meter high and 36 meter long metal outline of a piece of cloth, which looks like it is floating gently to the surface of the earth.

Located on Gibb’s Farm sculpture park in New Zealand, Horizons by Neil Dawson is part of a permanent exhibition curated by art collector Alan Gibb. Made specifically for the sculpture park, Horizons clearly reacts to the landscape, which happens to be the number one criteria set by Gibb. Thankfully, the landscape is full of inspiration.
