Wall Art - Tui - By Aimee Gruar
Tui - Classics Up To Date by James Last
Using old vinyl records, Aimee Gruar has created silhouettes of native New Zealand birds which conveniently attach to a wall with blu-tack. Complete with their own original album cover, these lightweight pieces of unique art make great gifts to easily send within New Zealand or overseas.
Common throughout most parts of New Zealand, Tui is known for their unusual calls which differ for each bird and are complex due to the two voice boxes they possess. At first glance, they appear to be completely black except for their distinctive white tuft, and a lace-like collar around their neck. On closer inspection, they have brown feathers on their backs and flanks, and a multi-coloured iridescent sheen that varies depending on how the light strikes them. Seen by some as messengers from the gods, they represent life fulfilment, confidence, and spiritual harmony.
