Ink on canvas (A4).

This piece took a while to finish because I had to draw it out on paper and then transfer it to the canvas. Was quite difficult to get nice clean lines due to the canvas texture and the fact that the ink would take several minutes to dry.

If you would like to buy it please make a offer.

KEA

The kea is a large parrot endemic to New Zealand (almost exclusively the South Island, though vagrants make it up to the North), that is currently listed as Vulnerable. Unusually, the kea is an alpine parrot (unusual for parrots), though is also found in lowland regions as well. The kea is perhaps most well-known for its mischievousness; which combined with its neophilia, can make it a pest in many tourist areas (where it will steal things, destroy the rubber and fixings on cars, and generally explore in a destructive manner). The kea has an unusually high mortality rate in its first few years, though it has survived for longer than fifty years in captivity. They are generally polygamous, semi-nocturnal, and are omnivores with a varied diet.

KEA The Rapscallion

Clowning around, neophilia (love of new things), novelty, Aquarian energy, mischievousness, cheekiness, being a rapscallion, alpine wisdom and mythology, teasing others and being teased, good-natured ribbing, life is short, enjoying the moment while it lasts.

Takahe as Totem

The takahe is a flightless bird, closely related to the purple swamphen in the rail family. It was thought to be extinct for some time, before being rediscovered in the Murchison Mountains in New Zealand. It survives today, as an endangered animal, with new 'safe' populations being kept on off-shore islands. The takahe lives in alpine regions, and eats the base stems of snow-grass. It is a territorial bird.

Keywords associated with Takahe as a totem animal are:

surprises, expect the unexpected, an inability to soar over your problems, celebrating sound and sound magic, surviving in austere environments, adapting to harsh conditions, surviving predation, strength and sturdiness, the need for constant nourishment.

The Taniwha is a beast of Maori Mythology. It is a Guardian of deep ponds in rivers, dark caves and the ocean. Closely interlinked with the land, it punishes any who dare to break Tapu (taboos) and has been used to defend land from development. If one has interacted with a taniwha in their life, then it is possible that they shall become one after death. Likewise, some woman have been known to have relations with male taniwha and produce taniwha offspring.
