DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Lions have always been regarded as symbols of royalty, on account of their strength and of their mighty look.

This rampant lion was requested by Brendan, and the maorigram below quotes the latin phrase "Acta non verba", meaning "Deeds non words" which is the motto of his boarding house.

We used inside the lion some motifs related to its nature such as the sun (glory, eternity), a fish hook (prosperity, social status) end the hammerhead shark motif (determination and strength).

The waves used for the mane are here used to recall Brendan´s passion for water sports.
