"Molly Macalister's Maori warrior of 1964 (Queen Elizabeth II Square, Auckland City) is one of the greatest public sculpture commissions of the period. From all the research that she did for that work, came this current sculpture. Her friend, Colin McCahon wrote: 'Let us sing for Molly with the sculptured head - a head bearer for the many heads she made for the Queen Street Warrior: beautiful heads and perhaps she never really knew what she created. Few artists if any ever know this.' " (Curator's notes from Auckland Art Gallery website April 2010 Ref: http://collection.aucklandartgallery.govt.nz/collection/results.do?view=detail&db=object&id=3360)
