Leaked images of the secretive $1.5 million sculpture planned at the end of Queens Wharf show a simple, two-storey weatherboard state house.

There is also a skylight to allow cruise ship visitors berthing at Queens Wharf to peer inside the brilliantly coloured and intricate glass garden of native birds, flowers and insects that will glow softly at night. Michael Parekowhai's sculpture also features stairs leading to a platform to provide multiple views of a Venetian hand-blown crystal chandelier filling the interior.

The sculpture will cost $1.5m - $1m of which is being donated by real estate company Barfoot & Thompson.
