The pieces in this painting represent the extinction of the Laughing Owl (Maori name Whekau) thought to be due to the European settlers arriving in New Zealand as a result of bringing cats and dogs. The teal cup - inspired by the turquoise Crown Lynn cups commission for Air New Zealand in 1965 and the English rose. The last laugh is with the owl, who is clutching the dog or cat's collar.
