Not so much art around in the Sevens’ costumes this year but this art triptych kind of made up for it. Turned out the ‘Girl with the pearl earing’ (the original is in the Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague) was a top-level sevens coach out for the day with two friends acting out the Mona Lisa from the Louvre and Goldie’s 1902 painting of Ina te Papatahi, a Ngapuhi chieftainess from the Christchurch Art Gallery’s collection.
