Description

The Takahe is a flightless bird which is indigenous to New Zealand. For 50 years the South Island Takahe was thought to be extinct, luckily that was wrong. If you have the time it is a great story of discovery, well worth googling. The North Island Takahe is extinct. This design uses 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. The colours are, purple-blue, greenish and brown. I also have this design for sale with the text Aotearoa, rather than New Zealand.

Description

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.
