Ruru (Jeremy Shirley)

Ruru (Jeremy Shirley)

This is one of the murals painted by Jeremy Shirley in this year’s “All Fresco” event of the K-Road Business Association. Sitting in somewhat cramped quarters, but looking out with piercing eyes, this is a portrait of a morepork (ruru, ninox novaeseelandiae), New Zealand’s only owl species.

Seen from the carpark corner Karangahape Road/ Gundry Street.
