The inspiration for this piece came from a chance visit to John's Nelson Market stall from a young man who had just finished some conservation work with the Kakapo. To John's amazement the young man produced a paper bag filled with Kakapo feathers. The soft fluffy feathers featured some of the most beautiful colours and patterns that John had seen, so he had to head straight home and create a Kakapo in his own style.
The soft gaze of the kakapo matches the softness of it's feathers. This is a very appealing piece.
