Inspired by Maori and Asian patterns. Kowhaiwhai
is a form of Maori decoration that takes the form of abstract curved pattern work. Traditional Maori design, the spiral, or koru
, is a prominent feature in Maori art. It represents the new unfurling frond of the Silver Fern
, and symbolises birth or new life.
The embossed pattern is my interpretation of contemporary Maori and chinese design.
