I found this mural a while back in Kaikohe on the side of one of the older buildings. Painted by someone named Cory R it looks like it was done a few years ago. Apart from the flora, flax and Taniwhas it has been sadly graffitied here and there. I can't find any information about Cory but Taniwhas are knowns as being mythical creatures that lurk in watery dens or caves and were often depicted as dragons or serpents - sounds like an Eel to me.
Linking up with Mural Monday.
