This image is part of my 'Tales of the Faether' exhibition.
The ruru, or morepork, is New Zealand's only surviving native owl and is named after its haunting, melancholic call. In Maori tradition the morepork was seen as a watchful guardian and belonged to the spirit world. Being kept in solitude in a ‘tower’ suspended above the world, weighed down with masses of hair, I’m sure Rurupunzel would have gone more than a little bit insane. And probably made macramé.
