Crab and stars
Prosperity, protection

View this photo!
In China, crabs are symbols of prosperity and social status (same meaning as Maori fish hooks, which we used here for the pincers).

In some cultures they represent protection, on account of crabs having an armor-like shell (thus we made the shell out of a tiki, symbol of fertility and protection), and sometimes they simbolyze the ability of reaching goals by a sideway path, going round the obstacles like waves, which in fact we also used for the pincers.

This Maori styled crab with swirls and stars was requested by Whitney.
