A symbol from Peru

I was very moved when my mum gifted me with this necklace from Peru.
She said she thought of me when she saw it.
What she doesn't realise is how me it really is. I've just been reading the Celestine Prophesy set in Peru and delving into chakra colours and energy. This is an uncanny reflection of everything I am focusing on at the moment. The colours are even in precise order, and the shape is like a topographic view of a person from their crown chakra to their base. The little pearl piece at the top represents a universal energy, the drop of which feeds all of our own.
I wonder what the creator sees this design as. But does that matter, now that I have applied my meaning to it and see it perfectly represented?
I don't know if there is anything better than a gift derived from love and acknowledgement that is aesthetically pleasing and holds timely meaning to both the giver and receiver. joy!

(Please note, it was also the first time in 28 years that mum got it right)

I noticed that the other day, it's very striking; it sort of stuck in my mind in a way that most pieces like it don't.
