Dressed in robes of royal red, blue, and purple, she is a queen and she knows what she wants and how she wants it. And like all queens, she has many courtiers attending her, all in emerald green livery, so drab by comparison but still stunning. The female and male eclectus parrots are in fact so different in colour that they were thought to be different species (see second photo).
An edition of 3 at 80x80cm is also available - price on application.
