DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The manta ray symbolizes freedom, and inside of it there is a stylized bear paw surrounded by a path of Kamehameha symbolizing difficulties, with an all-seeing eye in the center for protection.

The path of Kamehameha ends below the sun (success), reached by Luca thanks to tenacity, determination (the hammerhead shark on the left of the path, with its body made of spear heads), strength and adaptability (the shark on the right of the path).

For further protection two tiki shape the tip of the wings of the manta.

Birds represent this voyage and the reached new perspective, while fish are for prosperity.

The two koru on top are symbolic for rebirth.
