Well, both of them :Since there is no thread to hijack here yet....I have to ask....Matuva, is your Avatar just artwork, or does it mean something? Anything special?
Ah..I see. I thought it was interesting..............Well, both of them :
artwork if we consider that the designer who made it for local government is known as caring about local native legends when conceiving it. The tree is a pine (Araucaria specie) and is widely found in south of New Caledonia and Isle of pine located point south. The shell is the one from the Nautilus, a squid cousin we can find in our lagoon, and the you get the totem.
About the pine and the shell, I don't know their special meaning.
About the totem, it is called the "mwakââ", and is supposed to symbolize the melting of all communities living here...
