The framed artwork pictures a tornado drawn in silver ink on black paper, along with the words "the political cycle" and the Prime Minister's signature.

"This signed original doodle by Jacinda was donated to Red Beach School to be auctioned to fundraise for the school," the auction reads.

"We are incredibly grateful that the Prime Minister of New Zealand took the time out of her busy schedule to create this for us. 

"With the elections just a couple of weeks away, now is the time to snap up this collectable piece of fun art."

The artwork is being auctioned off with all proceeds going to Red Beach School, the sellers say.

It's currently sitting at $1040, with 33 bids placed and the auction closing on Friday night.
