I've been dabbling with the idea of mosaicking a koru. Maybe not in these colours but using a multimedia kind of approach. It's very much only a thought in my head at the moment. But I also like the symbolism behind the koru:
The koru shape is a scroll shape and is linked to the New Zealand fern plant. The shoot of the fern has a curled-over tip which unfurls and becomes a fernleaf.
The koru reaches towards the light, striving for perfection, encouraging new positive beginnings…
The koru, represents the unfolding of new life, that everything is reborn and continues. It represents renewal and hope for the future.

Spirals are already popular subjects for mosaics – I've posted a photo of a local one thats to be found in the local botanical gardens here in Darwin:

Now I just have to work out a way of doing it. At least its something that's easy to doodle in idle moments.
Yes, the ideas are outsprinting the skillbase and materials at present but you have to dream about these things.
