Te Manaia
Guardian angel

View this photo!
Maoris believe the Te Manaia to be a creature with bird´s head, human body and fish tail, and it represents a guardian angel. When the hand is drawn with three fingers, they indicate the balance between sky, earth and sea. It´s a symbol of protection, and the gecko we placed inside its body is a magical creature, which is told to keep deseases away from the house they live in. The shark´s teeth motif stands for strength.

We inserted a G letter inside the manaia, as requested by Patrizia.
