    38 <p>Greenstone is a semi-precious stone that (like this software) is sourced
    39 in New Zealand.  In traditional Maori society it was the most highly prized
    40 and sought after of all substances.  It can absorb and hold <i>wairua</i>,
    41 which is a spirit or life force, and is endowed with traditional virtues
    42 that make it an appropriate emblem for a public-domain digital library
    43 project.  Its lustre shows charity; its translucence, honesty; its
    44 toughness, courage; and the sharp edge it can take, justice.  The carved
    45 piece used in the Greenstone Digital Library Software logo is a <i>patu</i>
    46 or fighting club, and is a family heirloom of one of our project members.
    47 In hand-to-hand combat its delivery is very quick, very accurate, and very
    48 complete.  We like to think these qualities also apply to our software, the
    49 razor sharp edge of the <i>patu</i> symbolizing the leading edge of
    50 technology.</p>
