Inspired by "Ruru"


The owl has always been associated to magic and knowledge, to wisdom. We drew the outer shape using a stylized waves motif to recall the movement of the wings while flying, silent and rhythmic, and we placed a matau, or fish hook, as a wish for wealth. Wings are made of stylized korus and shark teeth to represent adaptability and change.

Requested by Alessandro.
