Art Print of the Morepork / Ruru – native owl of New Zealand. 

Morepork are considered guardians of the forest, with the power to protect, warn and advise.  They’re important birds in Maori mythology, and their glowing eyes can be found in Maori carvings, inlaid with paua shell.  The glaring eyes seen in the Haka, are also inspired by the Morepork.

As birds of the night, they can see in low light, but have exceptional hearing to locate prey in the dark.  They are silent in flight, with serrated feathers on their wings which muffle sound. 

This image is set against a dusky blue sky background, with the Morepork in shades of cocoa brown and caramel.
