This fierce wee manu / bird is part of my Fight or Flight series of paintings. 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 Korimako'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.

The title of this literally translates to The Bellbird is Flying. I had hoped to play with the different words / interpretations of te reo for flying but my ideas were trickier than my understanding of our beautiful language. It was a good learning curve. 


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