Kahu

Steel sculpture by Robert Onnes

Helen & I were riding south out of the Waipoua Kauri Forest late last year on the motor bike.  A harrier or hawk launched it's self from the undergrowth on the side of the road, barely missing our helmets. The harrier is a native of New Zealand and it's Maori name is Kahu. This was the inspiration for the "Kahu" works.
