“Pohutukawa Percher” from the “A Cup Of Tea & A Lie Down” series

Those beautifully shaped bone china cups – lovely to look at, impossible to hold...

(cram your fingers together and don’t raise your pinky finger as this is 
considered bad etiquette! Gasp! What will the neighbours say?) 

This little Fantail (Piwakawaka) is quite demure with her tiny feet clutching the delicate cup handle gracefully as she nods off (one too many cakes perhaps?).

This shape of tea cup was traditionally painted with old fashioned roses on it but I wanted to make a more Kiwi version of it so I painted it with bright Pohutukawa flowers.
