Sperm Whale Tooth

Tooth pendants are important cultural objects throughout the Pacific. Whale ivory and bone were taken from beached whales.*

Unknown maker/artist, date 1800.

Artistic and Curatorial Process

These objects are replicas of artifacts imagined as lost, hidden or misregistered during the Museum of New Zealand's tenure in the former Museum Building on Buckle St, now occupied by Massey University's College of Creative Arts. The objects have been created through a process of drawing, digital 3D rendering, and finally printing with an Open Source 3-dimensional printer – the RepRap.
