Malie
Shark
Malie means shark in Samoan.

Fontaine asked for the outline of a shark in Samoan style, to honour his origins.

We used both traditional and modern Samoan motifs to prepare it.

Modern ones are on the side fins: flax leaves on the left one (unity, family, for his son) and a flower on the right one (beauty, for his wife).

The rest is made of traditional motifs, among which centipedes (the warrior, fighting spirit, courage and tenacity), since he´s in the army, birds (freedom, leadership), caterpillar and pandanus, whose dried and pulverized leaves were used to help wounds cicatrize.
