Very similar to a koru (which is a Māori for '"loop or coil"') this carving is of a young silver fern frond.
The frond, or koru, symbolises new life, new growth, strength and peace.
These make a wonderful patriotic gift for any kiwis leaving New Zealand to remind them of home.
Christchurch carver, Ben Te Karu has been carving traditional Maori jewellery for decades and we are very lucky to be able to sell his work. They are incredibly detailed and finished to the highest quality.
