Fine art print.
Features South Island takahe (Porphyrio hochstetteri), previously known as Mantell's notornis. It was thought to be extinct after the last four known specimens were taken in 1898. However, the bird was rediscovered by geoffrey orbell near lake Te Anau in the Murchison mountains in 1948.
Based on a lithograph from the late 1800s by Walter Buller, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
