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.

6 New Zealand birds. I drew these out as a mural a few years ago. Recently I decided to remake them graphically, it was a fun project for me. Revisiting my old work using technology to improve and refine my early work. I used 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. New Zealand has so many wonderful birds, we are lucky to have them. Featuring Takahe, Kiwi, Fantail, Silvereye, Rock Wren, and Tomtit. A great gift for a Kiwi who misses home, or even one that you want to remind how great home is.
