The two central warriors represent Andriy and his grandfather, who grew and taught him (the stepping stones around him).
The row of flies represents his death and the spearheads that join both symbolize passing the strength and courage to fight through every challenge (the path of Kamehameha).
The adze and dot symbolize how important have been these acquired skills.

The koru made of waves represents a change leading to a new beginning, while the row of birds represents this voyage, faced with adaptability and tenacity (the shark teeth and octopus tentacles).

The hammerhead shark again represents the warrior who protects his family (represented by the turtle with flax leaves on the shell) with tenacity and determination.
Within the turtle, the couple is surrounded by braids to represent union and commitment, protected by two tiki on the front flippers and enclosed within a big sun for eternity and joy.

The mountains on top symbolize the stability reached together, and fish are for prosperity.
