First the story behind HIWA tohu or symbol. HIWA descends from the celestial goddess Hiwa-i-te-rangi. 

The niho taniwha patterns at the peak of our main shape represent Ngā whetu o Matariki and Hiwa-i-te-Rangi being the star that is connected to the promise of a prosperous season and vigorous growth.
