Painting of St Peter's Anglican Church by Ella Thompson

This painting of Katikati's St Peter's Anglican Church was done by Ella Thompson in 1984.  Missing for a while, it was rediscovered by Don Wallis in the ceiling of the church building. It had to be cut into two pieces to be removed, but was restored and has been on display in the Katikati Heritage Museum since it opened in 2000.  Although often described as a mural, this is not strictly accurate since it was painted on a large canvas rather than directly onto a permanent surface.
