- The endemic fernbird/mātātā (Bowdleria punctata) is a small and well camoflagued bird that lives in dense, low wetland vegetation. They are still present in small areas throughout New Zealand, though many local populations have disappeared as a result of habitat loss - in the last 150 years, over 90% of New Zealand's wetlands have been filled or drained. This painting contains an abundance of native wetland species including raupō (Typha orientalis), the endemic red admiral butterfly (Vanessa gonerilla), the fern kiwakiwa (Blechnum fluviatile), glasswort (Salicornia quinqueflora) and the possibly introduced puarangi/native hibiscus (Hibiscus richardsonii) -
All prints have excellent archival properties and are printed in Nelson, New Zealand on 300gsm, 100% post consumer waste recycled stock. Please be aware that because the prints are made with recycled stock, very tiny flecks may be present on some of the paper. I enjoy the natural look this gives and feel it is much preferable to printing on paper made from old-growth forest pulp!
Each is individually signed and monogrammed and comes with a thick board backing, information blurb on rear and enclosed in a 'cellophane' bag for protection. Shipped flat in recycled cardboard packaging.
