The original painting 'Portrait of a Kōkako' by Kirsty McMahon features a stunning North Island Kōkako bird amongst native clematis flowers (puawhananga).


The Kokako belongs to the endemic New Zealand wattlebirds, an ancient family of birds which includes the saddleback and the extinct huia. They are known for their 'haunting' song and striking blue wattles. Thankfully, their population is continuing to rise in areas with sustained predator control.


The highly detailed acrylic painting is on A4 sized (21cm x 29.7cm) 300gsm watercolour paper.

The painted area is 17.5cm x 26.3cm with a border of 1.8cm.
