It is a very special insect for their movements, beauty and contrast that serve as perfect picture to look at a Victorinox knife

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Northern South America

What story does your design tell?

Simplicity and highlight colors, shapes and contrasts

What style did you choose for your design and why?

For anything special, I like the design details.

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.

In my home I always see Mantis Reliosas yet never had detailed such beauty in an insect, so the design is only highlight the colors and contrasts dramatically this little animal.
