ENGRAVED DESIGN – GECKO:

These curious creatures are often considered to be a sign of good luck and a symbol of keeping one eye on the past while focusing the other on the future.
Geckos have been symbolically linked to ... conservation, agility, dreaming, renewal, transformation, ancient energy.
The gecko lizard has a thick stumpy tail which they can drop in defence during a fight, and later re-grow. This can be symbolic for the ability to "let go of" or detach from something that is no longer needed in order to move on, survive, and grow.
