'Harbour mouth molars', Dunedin

Sculptor Regan Gentry's 'Harbour mouth molars' (2010) line the shore of Dunedin's Kitchener Street park. Inspired by the University of Otago's dental school and Otago Peninsula's volcanic origins, the sculptures combine ideas of painfully emerging teeth and new landforms thrust up by volcanoes.
