To the Maori people of Aotearoa, New Zealand, the koru is a tohu (symbol) of divine inspiration from nature. It is a symbol that represents an unfurling silver fern frond, New Zealand’s most iconic native plant.
The fern shoot has a tip that remains curled within itself that begins to unfold as it grows to become the fern leaf.
The koru symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Maori art, carving and tattoos. The circular shape of the koru helps to convey the idea of perpetual movement while the inner coil suggests a return to the point of origin.
The majestic rimu can be found throughout New Zealand. Mature specimens grow to a height of over 60 metre (200ft) and up to 1000 years of age. Heart rimu with a red/brown grain is one of the most beautifully figured woods in the world.
A growing scarcity, fuelled by felling bans and ravenous demand has made rimu a highly sought after and priced decorative timber. This product is made from recycled NZ rimu.
This product is finished with heat/scratch resistant lacquer. It should be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
