The laumei/turtle is respected in Samoa for its easy grace and tranquil nature. It glides through the Blue Pacific Waters so subtly. It is a sacred animal in all of Polynesia.
A group of Turtles swim in warm Pacific waters towards the surface. Their shells are decorated with Samoan Motifs. They rise in celebration, returning to their spawning grounds on the shores of Samoa. Again here amongst the fauna is the idea of constant movement of the wave form.
