NM? Correct….
a church? It is a place of worship, not necessarily known as a church…

The stylized metal “sculpture” visible on the wall is a menorah

The structure is on the edge of a canyon

Yep, it's a Maori mask.

It's kinda spooky, so it would fit in with the holiday of Halloween.

Now where is it?

Okay, it's the Auckland War Memorial Museum in Auckland.

From 1991 to 2003 the museum's Maori name was Te Papa Whakahiku.

So I'll give it to you.

Close enough!
