Photo: Whale Bone Exhibit Taranaki New Zealand

This whale bone exhibit in Taranaki, New Zealand was created over time with a great amount of care and patience.

An exhibit displayed along the Foreshore Coastal Walkway in New Plymouth, Taranaki on the North Island of New Zealand, which brought out the enthusiasm of many local people. Each day there was a little more added to this unique whale bone exhibit and people would come to see the progress made until the project was completed.

An artistic exhibit created by Kim Jarrett and named "Tutunui's Garden" now adorns the waterfront of New Plymouth, Taranaki in New Zealand. To start the building of this exhibit, a collection of whale rib bones where made with each one being close to six meters in length.

Not true whale bone, instead they are made up of steel and foam, the ribs were bolted to a steel frame with the base being buried underground. Replicas of whale vertebrae were used as seats and people to Taranaki, New Zealand can sit beneath this unique exhibit and watch the sunset enlighten the sky. ... continue below the picture...

A pool was created beside the whale bone exhibit and as evening takes over the New Zealand sky, lights illuminate "Tutunui's Garden" which reflects in the water. Although this exhibit was a yearly project for the Taranaki Rhododendron and Garden Festival, consideration has been given by the local council of Taranaki, New Zealand to keep this whale bone exhibit as a permanent landmark.
