Te Manaia is the Maori symbol to represent the guardian angel: a creature with a bird´s head, the body of a man and the tail of a fish, to symbolize its equilibrium and sovereignty over elements (air, earth and sea).

Andrea requested a Te Manaia that would include the A and G letters into its design (you can find them both hidden inside its neck and chest).

 Hi, I´m Maori and your Te Manaia tattoo is not what I would identify as a maori design.

[TT: that´s true: none of our designs is traditional (unless a few ones where we specifically stated so) but original creations inspired to Maori and Polynesian traditions, and modified on our friends requests... good point!]
 If you have a request, send it from this link instead: custom request.
