The shield is symbolic of protection and strength.
The Zulu shaped shield draws on our rich cultural heritage.
The Ankh is the key of life a symbol easily linked with religious connotations.
I have adapted its shape to a sword representing strength.
One side of the Ankh is male the other female
and the two together balance forces and bring the third entity.
The carving as a whole is about the strength in a spiritual way of living.
