Design Inspiration

This work explores the tail form as a totem; an emblem of the wonderful gift of nature that surrounds us here in Tāmaki Makaurau. The kōtare, often seen observing from a perch, here casts a watchful eye over land and sea. The composition mimics that of many indigenous totems, using simple organic shapes to form a symmetrical design.
