[Painting] Root of Life by dragonoids [Painting] Root of Life by dragonoids
When coming up with the concept for the forth piece of this collections, I decided to go with something with more flow and curves, but still dramatic.

The overall design of the painting resembles the Maori symbol, the Koru. The Koru represents the beginning of a new life and purity to the world. Once again, I decided to use lots of colours to show that the life ahead is an unpredictable and exciting journey. The beginning of the journey is narrow, similar to that of a human life as one would get educated and nurtured by people around us, making help readily available. This phase would prepare one for the tougher road ahead, represented by the wider end of the Koru.

Wow. I just came across this piece... and it's so beautiful. All the colors and how they blend is so wonderful. I never knew about the Koru, so this was kind of educational, too. I love that. I faved/watched... and am now off to check out the rest of your work. =3

Hey there!

Glad you liked it! I am constantly learning about both the Aboriginal and Maori cultures myself :) It is really interesting when we comprehend them more, as we can add that more meaning and power to art pieces! Thank you for the support! :)

Cheers,
Clement
