The word maia has many meanings, such as brave, bold, capable, and it´s used to describe warriors.

The manta ray is a symbol of freedom, elegance and harmony, and inside it we placed the warrior and the axe (valiance, fighter), protected by manaias (guardian angels, they symbolize balance and protection over land, sea and air), the twist (love, bond), surrounded by fish hooks (abundance and wealth).

Waves symbolize change and korus a new beginning.

Seagulls represent freedom, like all the birds, and comunication with the gods (the tikis, symbols of protection).

Shark teeth are for strength and adaptability.

 I love this and am trying to see all the individual elements that make it up such as manaias and seagulls.
