This limited edition print by Rachel Walker has been carefully recreated from an original work create as part of a Forest & Bird project that paired artists and writers.
Together the creatives were challenged to create art and write about different landscapes around New Zealand. Rachel, alongside writer Hayden Maskell, were given the theme 'island sanctuaries'. The pair focused on Kapiti Island, New Zealand's oldest and most important predator-free sanctuaries.
