Sacred Kingfisher Pin

Sale price Price $29.99 AUD Regular price

There is certainly something sacred, even mysterious, about this little woodland kingfisher found throughout Australia, New Zealand and neighbouring Pacific islands. Known by its Maori name kōtare, the bird is New Zealand's only native kingfisher species and has survived due to its flashy, vibrant plumage which was considered too colourful for use in traditional Maori clothing.

• Featuring a silver plated, 18ga pin with cap end.
• Hand-shaped and hand-painted clay bird
• Hand cut, painted, lacquered, water-resistant paper leaf
