DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This ankle band has a protection value and it symbolizes balance.

The two facing tikis are protective symbols, and so is the manaia, the guardian angel that also represents balance between sea, sky and earth. The turtle is the navigator and the manta ray stands for freedom, and they both protect at sea.

The sun and moon symbolize balance between opposites and protection upon day and night.

The fish hook, or matau, is a symbol of prosperity and korus symbolize new beginnings, new life.

Shark teeth are for strength and adaptability, and waves are for continuity and love for the sea.

The Marquesan cross symbolizes balance of the elements and union between man and nature.
