Copycat bird

A reader (thanks P) has sent in this shameless copycat version of Don Binney’s painting Kokako, Tiritiri Matangi. The poor Kokako even loses its undercarriage in the blunt instrument graphic translation and the landscape obviously put into the too hard basket. The 2006/07 Binney painting was last seen at auction in 2009 where it went for $86,687. The copycards (supply your own wedding) are $24.52 a pack.
