Tiki
Figure, protection

View this photo!
Tiki means "figure", and that´s the name given to the abstract figures resembling human figures, which are usually associated to divinities and have a protective value.

This design for the forearm was requested by Jorge, and mutuates its name from the tiki centrally positioned, surrounded by a sun (eternity and positivity) dominating the other elements of the design, like the lizard (luck) and the manta (freedom and protection).

Shark teeth being the sun rays symbolize adaptability and strength, also enforced by the underlying row of spear heads, representing the warrior, courage and strength; the hammerhead shark motif symbolizes determination and tenacity.

High on the sun sides, the flying fish on the left symbolize prosperity, like the fish hook, and the the two birds on the right indicate that help will always be assured to the dear ones.
