This little dude is part of my Fight or Flight series that I started a couple of months ago. I sought to see what personalities evolved as I painted the birds. They are all flying but it looks like they are all in fight mode too. Some of Ngirungiru's survival attributes have been exaggerated, bigger eyes, a sharper beak and claws. He has lots of delightful, super subtle details that are impossible to capture effectively on camera.

Ngirungiru / Miromiro provided yet another learning curve with my Te Reo. I assumed that he would have the same name as to those in the North Is and I really should have known better. In english they are known as tomtits. These little birds are nearly as impossible to photograph as their pals the piwakawaka are. 

He was a special work created for the 200 x 200 section at the Wanaka Arts Exhibition.

Free tracked shipping within NZ. He will be carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and within corrugated cardboard to protect him.
