Design Motif, Memories of New Zealand

The logo for Air New Zealand incorporates two silver fern fronds.  This plant is New Zealand’s visual example of the lush plant life found on the two islands.  Tropical is my recollection of New Zealand, even from the window of our plane we could identify huge ferns reaching out among the hardwood and pines.  It is no wonder then to see the following collection from my photos.  Do you think I am obsessed with the swirl and stem? Expect to see this motif appear in artwork soon.
