The koru, which is often used in Māori art as a symbol of creation, is based on the shape of an unfurling fern frond. Its circular shape conveys the idea of perpetual movement, and its inward coil suggests a return to the point of origin. The koru therefore symbolises the way in which life both changes and stays the same.

These bright koru will be an awesome addition to classroom posters worksheets and signage.

The koru can be small or extended to almost the size of an A4 page which makes it versatile.

Therefore, ākonga can use this clip art to learn about re-sizing, rotation and reflection while making decorative pieces and practicing ICT skills.
