DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The journey is the destination.
The seahorse represents patience and tenacity and we placed it on the shell together with a lizard symbolizing luck and health, shark teeth for adaptability and a row of birds symbolizing freedom, voyage and watching the world from a higher perspective, continuing beyond the turtle towards the future.

The dot signifies importance, the goal to be reached and we placed one more bird beyond it to symbolize that once a goal is reached, there´s a new one ahead, a new voyage that starts there.

The left front flipper is a stylized manta (freedom and beauty, elegance) and the right one is a sea shell (intimacy, safe shelter, love, all of which should be our companions in the voyage of life); they both represent the sea as well.

The back flippers are a fish hook (prosperity and abundance) and a tiki eye (protection).
