DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

A turtle symbolizes the navigator (family especially when together with other turtles); this one is inspired by Maori and Samoan styles.

On the inside we have incorporated a manta (a symbol of freedom and beauty), and some motifs representing strength and protection.

The back fins are shaped like fish hooks to symbolize prosperity and wealth.
