While this symbol itself does not originate from Pacific cultures, the meanings are both ancient and universal.
It is based on the ancient YinYang symbol which describes a dualistic philosophy, where good and evil, light and dark are balanced and interdependent elements in all our lives.
This three-way variation has a number of meanings but in this context tells of the balance and unity of the three elements, creeds and divisions within society. Each part on its own is meaningless but joined to become one they form a powerful bond in love and life. The enclosing circle of life represents the unity and oneness of a strong community that protects and nurtures its own.
Like most symbols of this nature that draw on ancient elements, it can be interpreted in many ways. It can be seen as a haunting link to ancient mysticism, or as powerful symbol of unity in today’s world.
Either way it will take on the spirit or “Mana” of the wearer so its true meaning will be something very personal and special to that person and their loved ones.
