Reference Number: DCDL-0002672

An Egyptian pharoah or aristocrat sits on a camel contemplating a pyramid in the distance. The pyramid is surrounded by empty desert. A workman stands beside the camel and explains that although it might seem a strange place to build a national icon, it was decided to place it there in the desert because of the parking. Reference to the fight over where the new Auckland stadium to be built in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup should be put.
