Quality 100% cotton large NZ Tea Towels featuring 'A Whale’s Journey' (2020) art print by New Zealand Artist Matt Coates. This decorative tea towel features a fun art print of a whimsical and imaginative Whale that was painted in watercolour. The artist has digitally signed this artwork.



"After a rough storm, Blue was separated from the other whales in Misty Cove. Blue and Toby searched the seas for his pod, fishing and collecting debris along the way. Toby felt a very strong bond with the whale from their first connection on the shore many seasons ago. This artwork illustrates the bond between children and animals and how similar they are with life challenges and how they can both share a journey together."
