This Maori styled angel in the shape of a manta symbolizes
protection and freedom.
Protection and fertility, are represented by the two tikis inside the lower part of the wings, and the two manaias inside the upper part are two guardian angels, symbolizing balance and harmony between sea, earth and sky. Another element is family (the turtles inside the right wing and the orca whale on the left wing); the orca symbolizes family and the will of protecting it. The fish hooks on the wings ends symbolize abundance and wealth. The koru motifs indicate a new birth, along the path that leads to one´s very own island, the target to be reached, represented by the spot that the angel fosters in his hands.
