In our effort to interpret new and different cultures, we can lead to paths unknown, that had never been imagined. On these paths, we discover new themes, untold stories, interesting shapes, unrevealed colours. In this diversity that might have seemed important in the beginning, we might recognize another personality of us that might had been well hidden.My basic inspiration was the Indian art of tattoos; my attempt was to reveal something that I love, by creating something with a particular theme, dimension and subject.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The unique, custom made design presented in the front of the sideboard, reminisces of Mehndi, a traditional folklore decorative scripture reference that was used for religious reasons.
