Tauhou is a small bird that lives in the New Zealand forest. The European Name is Silvereye or Wax-eye. The bird in this print is drawn incorporating Maori Koru patterns. The koru (Māori for “loop”) is a spiral shape based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizing new life, growth, strength and peace. This design started life as a stencil which I made for a New Zealand birds mural. The mural is long gone but I still had the stencils. I redrew them, using vector, to create a series of bird designs. Others in this series are KIWI, TAKAHE, FANTAIL, TOMTIT and the ROCK WREN.

An original design which plays on two passions: hip hop and rugby. The love of hip hop is illustrated by the way it adopts a derivative of the name of N.W.A’s debut studio album, ‘Straight Outta Compton’. For rugby its affection is shown by the inclusion of the province of Canterbury where New Zealand's first internationals were played and famous for its All Blacks players e.g. Richie McCaw and Dan Carter.
