This group of Cockatoos made with a 13 layer stencil in 6 colours on reclaimed real estate signage, come from a larger set of 100 (1300 layers with 12 cans of paint in 6 colours used). Both Cockatoos and real estate signage are common to Canberra, both are sign and symbol for other things. The birds need old hollows to nest, this means old trees. New housing requires land clearing, the loss often enough of old trees and farmland.
