NZ Greenstone Pendant Tattoo Koru - 38mm
NZ Greenstone Pendant Tattoo Koru.
In genuine New Zealand Greenstone carving traditionally the koru is said to represent new beginnings, growth and re-generation. We know it symbolizes the fern frond seen in New Zealand’s native bush because of the native New Zealand people, the 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.
This unique and beautiful piece of genuine New Zealand Greenstone or Pounamu as the Maori people have named it, has been hand carved and then lightly oiled to bring out the natural beauty of the stone.
This Tattoo Koru Pendant is made at our Factory in the Wairarapa using Pounamu from the West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand. Please note that each piece of Pounamu is unique, we select the lighter shades to enhance the Tattoo design.
