Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are large white parrots that are native to Australia. They are very social and have a great sense of humor like most Aussies do. Often found in groups where they just look like they’re fooling around and having fun. Their yellow crest rises when the birds are threatened, angry or excited. This Cockatoo is clearly very excited to say G’Day to you!
The background of this piece references another aspect of Australian culture. The Aboriginal people of Australia commonly use this dot technique in their art pieces and it makes for a work of art that is strikingly Aussie!
