DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This design belongs to the Maori style series dedicated to the elements, represented through the animals that live in them. More info and the full list are in this post of our blog.

The manta moves through the water with elegance and grace and so she inherits these two meanings. She also symbolizes freedom and protection in water. Mantas, like sharks, can often be deified ancestors, or Aumakua in Hawaiian traditions.
