Greenstone koru on wood sculpture
The Koru is a symbol that represents both harmony and eternal movement. It also holds powerful meaning symbolising new life, growth, strength, and peace.
This koru has been carefully carved and mounted on a driftwood base, creating a beautiful ornamental piece. Crafted by Master Carver Lee-Roy Mullings in our Arrowtown workshop from New Zealand West Coast Greenstone. Lee-Roy has been carving koru for 30 years and has perfected his Mahi with this design. The koru is held firmly in place via a small metal rod into the wood. The koru can be lifted in and out of the wood to touch.
The kawakawa stone has been delicately carved and polished with a fine finish. Its circular curves and design catch the light to showcase the inner stone. A lovely addition to any home or gift to friends or whanau.
The Koru’s circular and spiral shape is based on the structure of the unfurling native New Zealand silver fern frond. Its continuous movement of both inner and outer coil represent movement through life and how life changes, yet stays the same. The inner coil of the Koru is said to represent the birthing of our young. As the frond grows to mature into an adult frond it flourishes, and germinates new fronds, depicting the cycle of life.
Koru is 10cm across (circular)
Bottom of wood to the top of the Koru 13cm.
Wood base is 7cm x 11cm
