Simple yet powerfully symbolic, the New Zealand Silver Fern Art Poster depicts a frond of the Silver Fern tree against a black background, emphasising the green and slightly silver tones.
The Silver Fern is a medium-sized tree fern native to New Zealand. It can be recognised by the silver-white colour of the underneath surface of mature fronds. This tree has been accepted as a symbol of New Zealand's national identity since the 1880s! To the Maori - indigenous people of New Zealand - the distinct, elegant shape of the fronds represented strength, enduring power, and stubborn resistance. To Pakeha (New Zealand people of non-Maori descent), it symbolised their sense of attachment to their homeland.
Despite its simple form and subtle look, the Silver Fern is truly significant and would make a wonderful addition as a wall decoration in your home. Alternatively, take it with you on your travels as a unique travel poster symbolic of New Zealand and their heritage.
