I have covered my bear with typical New Zealand motives, mainly flora and fauna. If you feel like counting, you will find twelve birds, including two kiwis (which are unable to fly), in a blue egg on the bear’s belly. Maori patterns adorn the head and arms. Two pre-historic tuatara lizards crawl up the feet. On the back of the arms you can see the dormant volcano Rangitoto, an emblem of my home town Auckland on the left, and the active volcano Ngauruhoe on the right arm. A group of New Zealanders, old and young, gather behind the two flags: the official New Zealand flag and the alternative one designed by the artist Hundertwasser.
