Unfurling fern frond

“In pounamu carving the koru is said to represent new beginnings, growth and regeneration. We know it symbolises the fern frond seen in New Zealand’s native bush because of a Maori proverb that speaks of rebirth and growth: Ka hinga atu he tete-kura – ka hara-mai he tete-kura (As one fern frond dies – one is born to take its place).” – source
