Going within - Peaceful Mind
This carving is called 'Transformation'. The carving evolved from a being simple Koru into a more elaborate carving with added detail later. So, this carving was transformed. This is symbolic of being able to transform ourselves if we are unhappy, into someone who is happy.
Going within - peaceful mind
This is a symbol of strength, determination and peace of mind.
This carving is called 'Peaceful Mind'. It represents the duplicity of life where we can either be a leaf blown about by the wind of life, or as a result, we can transform ourselves into a 'Sail' and travel within ourselves to find the state of true happiness.
The hole represents looking and going ‘within’ to find all of the answers we desire.
Generally, as this pendant hangs around our neck, the hole is located at our heart level indicating that we can look deep into our heart for the answers.
The Koru designs also have significance. The koru symbol is common in New Zealand and is inspired by the unfurling of the new fern fronds. In this carving they represent the inner journey we need to traverse and the new beginnings this provides us. Meanings associated with this are new growth, new beginnings and spiritual awakening.
When we hoist the sail of wisdom and sail within, we will cross the ocean of inner obstacles that prevent our happiness and potentials from unfolding.
