The serene closed eyelids reflect
an interior calm. The swelling belly and navel are a sign of family and
continuity, with the hands embracing & protecting it. These figures do not
represent an individual, but reflect on family & lineage. A figure can refer
to a certain generation or an entire geneology. Chiefs may have 3 or 4
figures to represent his connection to a great family.
