This design recalls the shape of the "mere", a short club used by warriors, which now symbolizes glory and overcoming difficulties. We integrated a triskell in it since it´s a symbol of eternity through birth, death and rebirth, and balance.

The gecko represents supernatural powers, the te manaia is a guardian angel and the turtle is the traveller.

Just below, the two opposed tikis protect the fish hook, symbol of wealth and abundance.

Requested by Jordan.
