Inspired by the native american culture this project is dedicated to the american bison.
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
The American Bison is the national animal of the United States of America. Although I'm not based in America, I'm fascinated by these animals and also by the culture of the native americans.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
America/native America The symbolic meaning of bisons are for ex.: Prosperity, blessing, stability, strength, consistency, provision,…
What story does your design tell?
Bisons are the largest indigenous animals native to North America. Wild bison were roaming freely through the Great Plains by the hundreds of thousands, but by the end of 1800s they were even on their way of extinction. This work is also inspired by native american artwork (quilts) with their vivid colours and their patterns.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
It's inspired by native american quilts and drawings.
