Depicts someone who is overflowing with emotion from the heart. One who has an abundance of love and gives freely. The front portrays a shield for physical and spiritual protection.

"Ko Te Hei Matau A Maui" (The fishhook of Maui) assures peace, prosperity, good luck and good health.

The ripo ripo (recognised by the dots) reminding you that there will be trials to work through and also representing your posterity (descendants) passing your knowledge and experiences down.

The scroll suggests to you to make sacrifices in life, to protect or achieve, as the mother of Maui did, cutting off the top knot of her hair to wrap Maui for protection.
