Pattern of the Sacred Ibis


Pattern of the Sacred Ibis

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

African Sacred Ibis. I like their shape and colours.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

The Sacred Ibis is found in most areas of Africa and is also a mythical bird.

What story does your design tell?

These Ibises are common in Cape Town, but I still find them pleasurable to have in my environment and have enjoyed turning them into an artwork.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

I made the Ibises into a pattern as the colours work well as a repeat.

Please make sure you have filled out your country of origin in your profile! It’s important that the regional Victorinox team understands the cultural background of your design.

I am an illustrator and pattern designer based in Cape Town, which I love. I am drawn to the flora and fauna in my immediate environment as it is so abundant and diverse. (I am not drawn to sharks and snakes however!)
