Manu Kaitiaki, Bird Series I
"Protector of the people"
From his studio in Tairāwhiti Gisborne, Sir Derek Lardelli creates stunning pieces of artwork inspired by his vision.
Manu (the bird) is a Kaitiaki (protector or guardian) of the people. This piece is striking in both it's details and colors.
This one of kind piece is created from native timber and measures 1100 x 900 mm.
The kaitiaki (protector) will be provided to its new owner upon the close of the exhibition in late November.
