'Kokako and Kohekohe’ is an artwork of one of New Zealand’s rare birds, the North Island Kokako, a bird fondly known for its incredible haunting song that echoes through the forest.
The bird perches on a cluster of blooming Kohekohe, a native New Zealand tree that the Kokako like to feed on.
The artist, Hannah Shand, photographed Kahurangi the special female Kokako at Pukaha National Wildlife Centre where they have done incredible work to help the species. After introducing Kokako in 2007, they now have counted 30 pairs along with 17 other individuals who live over the mountain in the Wairarapa. She also studied and photographed the Kohekoke trees on one of her favourite walking tracks along the Waikanae River.
