Tui Kowhai White
Wiremu Barriball ©
Created during NZ COVID-19 lockdown level 4, March, 2020.
Te Kōkō or what is known more commonly nowadays as 'Tūi' is at first glance mostly black with little white throat tufts, however, in good light, they reveal a stunning sheen of iridescent blues and greens.
Gifted to Tane by the sacred deity 'Rehua', who adorned the neck of Tui with a star to give it vocal abilities to tell mankind of its heavenly origins.
As with all birds in Te Ao Maori, Tui are powerful beings that act as messengers on a spiritual level.
