Koru: new life and peace

I bought a Koru in Greymouth and I discover that the Koru is not only a symbol of new life, but also of peace. Matthew Eru Wepa creates beautiful bone carvings and writes in his book 'Symbols of the Maori World' that the Koru symbol relates to man's effort to create a situation where peace and tranquillity are the end result.
