‘Diminish and Ascend’

“Diminish and Ascend” is a welded aluminum sculpture by New Zealand artist David McCracken. Unveiled in 2013 at the “Sculpture by the Sea” exhibition in Sydney, the staircase-like structure now stands in a lake at the Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

When it was first unveiled in Bondi Beach in Sydney, “Diminish and Ascend” reached up and over the edge of a cliff, giving the impression, from some angles at least, of an endless “stairway to heaven” stretching up into the sky.
