This was a carving I made from a log of swamp Kauri, kindly donated by my partner’s dad, Kevin Walker. Kauri is a beautiful soft wood to work with, and has an extremely fine grain that polishes well.

The inspiration for this piece comes from my parents. They have created a beautiful ecosanctuary in Gisborne - the Longbush Ecosanctuary, and their logo for the sanctuary is a wood pigeon, so this sculpture is for them.
