The pachira (pachira aquatica) is a tropical plant whose flowers give edible nuts. Although native to South America, its symbolism is strongest in Asia. According to the Chinese tradition, its palmate leaves resemble hands that catch the good fortune of which the twisted trunk becomes the guardian.

Also popular in Japan and Taiwan, it is often used for ornamental purposes and makes a great housewarming gift by guaranteeing happiness and prosperity to the new home.

The fruits of the pachira are those of the work of art:
To the one who cherishes it, it will exalt his artistic passion and his interior.
To the one who invests, it guarantees a safe, even prosperous investment.



The tattooist

Banned by the first missionaries, Polynesian tattooing has undergone a revival and considerable expansion since the early 1980s.
Originally, it was a sacred art and the motifs were a social marker symbolizing the rank occupied in the hierarchy.
The whole body was susceptible to tattooing except for the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. The more a man was tattooed, the greater his ascendancy.
