“Wakahuia” are carved wooden containers made by Māori, where prized personal possessions are stored. In my painting I have placed the baby gannet next to the wakahuia as a symbol to show that our birdlife and environment are treasures to be looked after. Covered in seaweed, the bird looks bejewelled and regal. However it is climate change that has forced gannets to adapt to rising temperatures by cooling chicks with seaweed.
