Casanova the parrot was originally a result of one of Tiina’s creative though processes back in 1999. She created the giant bird with no particular end-use in mind. For years, he featured in exhibitions at the Intercultural Museum in Oslo as well as occasional solo exhibitions. Casanova went through a makeover in 2016 to ensure he is adhering to the latest fashion.
