Manaia and Whale’s Tail

This design combines two guardian forms: the Manaia (at the top) and the whale's tail (on the bottom). The Manaia, usually shown as a stylized bird, is regarded as a spiritual guardian. This contemporary interpretation of the Manaia represents the flight of the soul through life and beyond. Whales are also revered by the Maori as guardians; and symbolize protection and good luck for anyone who has an affinity with, or ventures over, the ocean.
