GUARDIANS ARE A SERIES CREATED AROUND MYTHOLOGY AND CALIFORNIA CULTURE.

Shrine (Latin: scrinium "case or chest for books or papers"; Old French: escrin "box or case")[1] is a holy or sacred place, which is dedicated to a specific deity, ancestor, hero, martyr, saint, daemon, or similar figure of awe and respect, at which they are venerated or worshipped.

Shrines are an important element of many cultures. Often religious, the elements presented have a familiar vocabulary associated with Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Native cultures, and many others.

The myths and spirit of California are an important element of American and international popular culture. The bear spirit animal, the surfboard representative of freedom, and the elements surrounding each piece become totemic shrines to the spirit of this land.
