Banded Kokopu, Galaxias fasciatus. Linocut print on acid free Hahnemuhle Sumi-e paper. Limited edition of 30. Each print is signed and numbered. 250x325 mm.

Banded Kokopu live in pools in small streams where there is a canopy of vegetation. I first saw these fish in a stream on Little Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf where I was volunteering as a Kakapo feeder. These fish are endemic to New Zealand, the juveniles of Banded Kokopu are one of the main whitebait species.

I drew the fish, transfered the drawing to lino, carved it, then printed on to beautiful acid-free Hahnemuhle Sumi-e paper.
