Pekapeka
Luck, longevity

View this photo!
Pekapeka means bat, from the shape we gave to this design.

Moeava and his brother will travel through China on their sidecar, and this drawing will be on the tankof their bike as a wish for a good voyage.

The central manta with a tiki inside symbolizes freedom and protection, the shark on the left is for adaptability and strength and the dolphin on the right is for friendship and happyness. Waves represent here change and eternal movement, and the general shape recalls a bat because in China bats are held in great honour. The word for bat is pronounced "fu", like the word for "luck", and thus the bat is associated to good luck and prosperity. Bats are often depicted in groups of 5, around a longevity symbol, to symbolize the 5 Fortunes: good luck, prosperity, wealth, happyness and longevity.
