The symbols represent the future and past. Some reference stories of desire and memory, of strength, history and commitment, of loyalty, relationships, and they carry values from the past to those in the future. When you wear the necklace, you are displaying part of who you are, where you have come from, and whats important to you. The origin of Maori symbols used in art were and still remain very important to Maori culture. Hundreds of years ago they had the power to remember story's of life, myths of creation, tales of the wearer, lineage and spirituality, before there was a written language as we know today. Symbol had strongly associated meanings with all the subtlety of a spoken language. The way they were drawn, their orientation and size all influenced their intended meaning, much like arranging a sentence in written English. It was important to get this right so that the symbols told the right 'story'. In pounamu carving the koru is said to represent new beginnings, growth and regeneration. We know it symbolizes the fern frond seen in New Zealand's native bush because of a 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 it's place". In Ta Moko art, the koru represents parenthood, ancestry, and genealogy. It’s believed to have human characteristics - a head, an eye, a neck, body, and tail. Because of these human characteristics, designs with a single koru and multiple koru growing from it are said to represent whakapapa (ancestry).
