Manu Kaitiaki, Bird Series III
"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 creates a striking visual in its use of dimension and textures.
This one of kind piece is created from native timber and measures 1300 x 800 mm.
The kaitiaki (protector) will be provided to its new owner upon the close of the exhibition in late November.
