DESCRIZIONE E SIGNIFICATO:
Maurice requested this hammerhead shark design. From the tail to the head, it tells the story of a voyage (honu shell motif) that brought a new start (the koru) which through many changes (the waves) has led him and his family (the turtle) to stability and to settling (the sun in the head), with a wish for luck to protect them (lizard) and for wealth (hei matau motifs in the fins). The turtle has a double spiral and a dot to symbolize unity, and the importance of it.
The hammerhead shark is a symbol of the tenacity and strength needed to achieve the goal.
