Twiss Sculpture

Karangahape Rocks

Seaside up the hill

The bronze sculpture, called Karangahape Rocks, is the work of Auckland artist Greer Twiss, and was his first public commission.

It was originally conceived and installed in 1969 with water flowing all over the forms, in such a way to not create spray on windy days. This element broke down in the late 1980s, but was restored in 2012.

“I made a rocky seaside of water and rocks, with people sitting beside them, for the people who use this park.” - Greer Twiss, sculptor.
