This New Zealand owl, Ruru or morepork, is entitled "Sister Moon". In contrast to the morepork with the light background entitled "Tonight, You belong to me", this one shows the morepork in its natural habitat, though illustratively equipped with a pounamu by artist Nikki McIvor as a part of her Pounamu series.
It is printed on high-quality paper by local printers Lamb Peters in Greytown. It is backed by cardboard and wrapped in a cellophane cover. The edition number is hand-written by the artist and is limited to 500.
Nikki McIvor draws her inspiration from the gorgeous New Zealand landscapes and wildlife. She works mostly in inkpen and coloured pencil, and specializes in capturing the unique personality of animals.
Nikki’s business Wild Honey Art produces cards, prints, t-shirts & tea towels based on iconic images from her works.
