From COR-TEN® steel, to fibreglass and cast bronze — our sculptures are wonderfully diverse, both in their creation and significance, but every piece shares something in common: they are all made by New Zealand artists.

Taupo Sculpture Trust has been fortunate to commission from, and collaborate with some of New Zealand’s most notable sculptors and we are proud to share these amazing artworks with locals and visitors to the Taupo region.

Pause for a minute as you’re walking the Taupo lake front and take a breather next to Flora Totem or Swell. Or make a day of it and visit all 12 sculptures around the Taupo region.

This is a wonderful time to get involved with the Taupo Sculpture Trust. We have some ambitious plans to bring more world-class works to Taupo — but we need your help. If you would like to be a supporter, now is the time. Every little bit helps, and every contribution will ensure we leave a legacy that will still be standing many years from now.
