Ko te Tuhono, by Ayesha Green, is a cast aluminium replica of the doorway into Otakou's wharenui Tamatea.
‘‘It is a passage to our landscape, our life and the wairua we share with the harbour,’’ Ms Green has said.
‘‘When you move through Ko te Tuhono, you are inside and outside, you are coming and going. As a monument to our tipuna and our tamariki, Ko te Tuhono transcends time and space.’’

‘‘We made the decision to not go ahead with them to ensure people with limited mobility could easily access the sculpture,’’ Dunedin City Council general manager of Maori, partnerships and policy Jeanette Wikaira said.
The project cost $65,000.
