This is a beauty!
Along with the teardrop and koro, Ana incorporated the top of a leaf in this design. Without its leaves, a tree doesn’t survive. In this case the leaf symbolizes a belief in, and support of, whanau. Like a leaf, a family member fulfills the needs of their whanau by providing sunlight, enabling all in the family to grow and flourish.
So KORO WHĀNAU was designed and made for someone in your family that is important and loved - it was carved carefully and with much thought given to its meaning.
We've hand plaited a manuka green with natural flax coloured cord and added a manuka green floret popper. This is on a fixed length of 56cm and has a jade toggle fixture.
The shape is streamlined, gloriously curved and polished to a rich, matte sheen. Take a look at the video and you will appreciate the artistry of this beautiful piece.
We have a small selection with more work ANA has carved for us which you can view HERE.
