About the tile:
Spirals of all kinds, especially fern fronds and how they unfurl, have long fascinated me. The
Maori Koru form, based on fern fronds and signifying new life and rebirth, has become a
recognizable New Zealand icon. My tile depicts a stylized “koru” or fern frond. “Aotearoa” is an
alternative name for New Zealand, meaning “land of the long white cloud.”
