The iconic fantail artwork from this pre-decimal stamp has been transformed into a beautiful pin.
The fantail, or pīwakawaka in te reo Māori, is a very sociable New Zealand native. The bird's name derives from its beautiful tail of twelve feathers, which broadly expands as the bird flits about. In the background of the design is one of the best-known flowers of the New Zealand bush, the beautiful clematis, which is particularly appropriate, as both the bird and the flower are usually found near the edge of the forest.
