ABOUT THE ART
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.
