Koru Art

Posted on September 14, 2017 in Hurungaterangi 4 - Stephanie Chand

The koru (Maori for “loop”) is a spiral shape based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizing new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Maori art, carving and tattoos.

This week we experimented with pastel shading to create koru masterpieces.
