This small size alabaster symbol carving is the latest addition to the Maori motive series. The Koru motive derive from the frond of fern, that represents life growth and strength, and symbolizes renewal and enlightenment. One of the most significant motive of the south Pacific.
By researching the origin of the symbol, I found many ways its drawn, painted or carved. My fascination about this culture inspired me to create my version. This small sculpture only 6″ tall, and the second carving of the series that I’m planning to continue.
