My image of the Mugari (Barracuda) is patterned within its body streamlining and portraying its environment as the warrior sits aiming his bow and arrow forward represents the predatory instincts of this agile hunter fish. 

On either side of the warrior are sunrise and sunset to depict the time when the fish is in hunting mode. The 5 head dress within the body represents the 5 different areas of the Torres Strait Islands. Western Group, Eastern Group, Top Western Group, Central Group and Karareg Nation.

All other patterns within the Mugari reflects its life environment under the sea.

My image and all its patterns  it encompasses a moral message of goal setting life experiences in saying always hunt your goals in life.
