Ake tonu atu
We called this arm band "ake tonu atu" which means "forever". The four turtles represent four persons, whose first letters were added just below them, who will always be close even if they may take different roads in life (the fins joined to form a twist represent lasting and strong bond).

Eachof them encloses a protective symbol, be it the tiki or the manaia, for protection and guidance in their lives.

Other symbols that were added are korus (birth, new beginning), the honu shell motif, symbol of the traveller, by land and sea (mountains and islands) and shark teeth to symbolize adaptability.

Requested by Riccardo.
