This ocean design represents connection to water. The Maori believe that water is the carrier of spirits; and the ocean is regarded as a place with with great mana (spirit and strength). In this sense, water also has a healing energy which is reflected in this carving by a stylized hand which represents drawing strength from the ocean. I have used cured beef bone in this design which creates the unique coloring.
