Hanging NZ Bird, Fantail / Piwakawaka
In Maori legend the piwakawaka is often represented as a messenger of the Gods and ancestors.
The piwakawaka oftens follows trampers chasing the tiny insects that they have disturbed.
The Piwakawaka won New Zealand Bird of the Year in 2006.
This decoration is made of fabric, sequins, white beads and metallic threads. It is small and light enough to post put in a Christmas card.
