This two colour, two-sided Tuatara New Zealand t-shirt features an original pen and ink drawing by Shaun Waugh. The portrait depicts Henry, a 120-year-old plus tuatara, the star attraction at Invercargill’s museum, beneath the ancient light of the stars of the southern hemisphere, centred on The Southern Cross. The original drawing was rendered in pen in fine detail so this art print has the look of real reptile skin. In the background is the coast of Stephens Island, the tiny off-shore island in the Marlborough Sounds that has been a sanctuary for the Tuatara, New Zealand’s living fossil, that has been extinct on the mainland for over a century.

A map showing the location of Stephens Island in the Marlborough Sounds features on the ‘New Zealand’s Living Fossil’ map design on the back of the shirt.
