The Queen
Cats were worshiped in ancient Egypt... a tradition some of us keep to this day :)


The idea was inspired by the status cats had in ancient Egypt. Every cat owner knows who's the real queen of his kingdom.

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

A cat. I love cats. They are beutiful, wise and intelligent creatures.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Egyptian, but there are millions of cat lovers everywhere around the world.

What story does your design tell?

The story of a queen cat and her everyday habbits

What style did you choose for your design and why?

The style is inspired by ancient Egyptian art

To be featured on facebook as the Victorinox "Pick of the Day" please write a short statement about you (see more details in the brief).

Hi, I'm Ioan and I'm a romanian architect and designer. For the 2017 Victorinox Limited Edition I chose to illustrate a cat and her daily habits. Every cat owner will agree that his cat behaves like the queen of the kingdom, doing mostly nothing while still being adored.
