Maori koru pendant 3D model
Here you can download a simple Maori Koru pendant 3D model created in Rhinoceros 3D software. The koru is a Maori symbol of strength, peace, tranquility, birth and new life (new beginning). It is spiral-shaped and represents a new unfurling silver fern frond (an endemic plant in New Zealand and the country’s unofficial symbol). Also, the koru is one of the most common decorative elements of the Maori people and can be seen in the remarkably intricate Maori tattoo designs, carvings in greenstone (pounamu) and various painted and carved elements of Maori houses and everyday objects.
The 3D model of the Maori koru pendant is very simple and easy to draw. Just draw the curves (paths, rails) and cross sections and use the Sweep command (included in any 3D software) to create a 3D model (solid or surface).
