Round Koru - Transformation

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. 

 

 
 

Round Koru - Transformation



This is a symbol of transformation, good luck and increased happiness. 

The koru symbol is common in New Zealand and is inspired by the unfurling of the new fern fronds. Meanings associated with this are new growth, new beginnings and spiritual awakening. 

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. 

The carving detail depicts a Manaia with koru flowing from its mouth. This shows that the power of our words has strong potential to transform our mind. The four ‘inner’ koru in the darker stained part of the carving represent the unfolding of our body, speech and minds potential to transform into the fully enlightened state of bliss. The Koru flowing up the outside of the carving represent the journey of transformation.
