Macrocarpa Silver Fern
Macrocarpa Silver fern carved and inlaid with green and blue glass
Home Decor, Kiwiana
DescriptionThe silver fern has been a symbol of New Zealand's national identity since the 1880s. To Māori, the elegant shape of the fronds stood for strength, stubborn resistance, and enduring power. To Pākehā (New Zealanders of non-Māori descent), the fern symbolises their sense of attachment to their homeland.
Dimensions: H465mm W255mm D50mm
This silver fern is carved into Macrocarpa, inlaid with coloured glass and coated with a waterproof solvent free, VOC free, eco oil that is produced in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Made from macrocarpa offcuts from a sawmill, that would otherwise have been destined for firewood, and recycled into art.
Our artwork and signs are hand finished so each piece is one of a kind. Other versions of the same design in stock may have minor variations in sizing, timber, colours etc. If your order comes through in a similar time frame to others for the same piece, we will offer you a similar one if we have one in stock, or we may be able to make a new one for you with the added benefit of small personal choice variations (to be discussed)
