Maxey immortalises two icons of the south in his extraordinary Kea Over Mount Cook. New Zealand's highest peak towers in the background, fully living up to the title of Aoraki - Cloud Piercer. From the heart of the painting emerges a Kea, an alpine parrot and one of the most intelligent birds in the world. Here he soars above the Southern Alps, wings outstretched, a true mainlander and emblem of the South.
