Euphoric Kingfisher / Kōtare
by Stirling ArtRegular price$1,500.00 Sale price
This large painting is an abstract of a Kingfisher / Kōtare in a swooping dive. It has sense of hyper fast movement and euphoria.
The artwork has many layers in blue and turquoise, with pink, metallic copper and golds. It doesn't show in the photos but depending on which way the light falls on the layers in the painting there are sparkles and beautiful iridescent shimmers, just like the feathers and plumage of the Sacred Kōtare.
The New Zealand native Kōtare / Kingfisher is a distinctive bird with a beautiful call. I love the call of the Kingfisher and feel utterly blessed when I see them in Plimmerton.
Kingfishers are symbolic of freedom, courage, adventure, balance, and free spirit.
My sincere apologies - the effects in the painting are almost impossible to pick up with a camera, so the photos and short clips are at different angles to try to capture some of the effects.
The artwork is much better in real life as the human eye can see all the layers and differentiate light sources.
This painting took me almost a year to complete. My daughter tells me it my best one, yet which might explain why I'm a wee bit reluctant to part with it. But I know whoever buys it, will be really delighted with it. It's truly beautiful, just like Sacred Kingfisher.
What does seeing a Kingfisher mean spiritually? Some suggest that Kingfishers are symbolic of freedom, courage, adventure, and balance. They have a free spirit with wanderlust running in their blood. In many cultures, these magnificent birds are also associated with fertility and good fortune.
