Woody Bee


Acrylic, foil, lacquer & varnish

He is such a part of our culture in NZ, I wanted to make him more ‘Native’. He was striped back to the wood and repainted using modern maori motifs while sticking with the traditional black, white & red colour palette. His head is cocked to one side for a taste of humour as if saying ‘Gidday Mate!’.
