Pikorua - This is a Maori twist symbol that resembles an intertwined new-growth pikopiko fern frond found in the damp woods of New Zealand. It represents the beauty, strength and endurance of the bond of loyal friendship between two people. It is also symbolic of the criss- crossing and inter-linked paths of life of friends. True friends share an eternal connection that will not weaken even when the persons are separated at times.
