MULKOHA (THE CUCKOO) finds us in the realm of opportunism.

Symbolic female representation often takes the form of a musical instrument, utilised here as an ornamental MARIACHI Guitar (owned by FRIDA KAHLO) and combined with a wooden painted model of a MULKOHA BIRD (Cuckoo), who recognises a favourable moment presented to it while safely, but riskily, hidden behind a prickly plant, as a departing figure appears as disappearing from view.

The telephone is present in order to represent the triangulated communications which become increasingly complex as scenarios develop, it is also a punctuating metaphor of the increasing passing of time and distance between parties.
