Kereru In The Karaka   *Print

Kereru In The Karaka *Print

SKU: 0014

The Kereru is a beautiful bird whose feather colours are like a deeper, more saturated version of Paua shell colours. 

When I get to see their display flights used in mating rituals I just stare transfixed because its so graceful and dramatic. 

In summer Kereru gorge themselves on berries which ferment in their puku (stomach) and they fall out of trees drunk and walk drunkenly around on the ground.

In this artwork the Kereru is nestled amongst the leaves and berries of the Karaka tree which is commonly found in the north island of Aotearoa New Zealand.
