Maori designs you see here have hold important religious and spiritual belief and meaning. They tell stories of ancestors long lost, depict spirits from the heavens, earth, and underworld, show historical lineage and paint images of the natural world that surround and surrounded them. They are no doubt beautiful, but they’re more than a form of art. For Maori they create a strong connection with their ancestors and the natural world they live in.
Influenced from Aotearoa.
We continue to be inspired by the birthplace of these designs and the importance this stone had and still has in Maori & New Zealand culture. These individual koru pieces are hand carved and beautifully polished in Arrowtown from high-quality New Zealand West Coast Greenstone.
