Tree fern - Spring

Koru is the Māori word and the spiral as in many cultures symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Māori carving and tattoos.

Thanks Captain ... unfortunately our country forgot about it's partnership with the Maori as far as sharing the culture in the 60's & 70's when i was schooled so I missed out on a lot of the maoritanga and culture. Fortunately all children do get a lot more education based learning now and there is a lot more pride in Maori & Pacific Island (Auckland has by far the largest Pacific Island population of anywhere) culture here now
