Harbour Mouth Molars

Wisdom Glow – Buy 

I often wander past this line of sculptors by Regan Gentry called ‘Harbour mouth molars’. Installed in 2010 on the shoreline of Dunedin’s Kitchener Street park, they were inspired by the University of Otago’s dental school and Otago Peninsula’s volcanic origins. The sculptures combine the ideas of painfully emerging teeth and new landforms thrust up by volcanoes. Personally, I think they’re wonderful, however I know others who feel differently. I like to think of them representing wisdom, but that’s just me.

  1. I too have always thought they are amazing and so unique to Dunedin. I have sat and had my lunch there many times over the last few years and always find it peaceful with the harbour view
