The woman warriors of the jungle


"The legend of the women warriors roamed all the heavenly realms. It belongs to those uniform circle of dreams and ideas around which the poetic and religious imagination of all human races and all ages gravitate almost instinctively."

Alexander von Humboldt

Which place, city and country is featured in your design? (place/city/country)

The Amazon rainforest, also known in English as Amazonia or the Amazon Jungle, is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon basin of South America.

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

Amazonia have unparalleled biodiversity, constituted by the largest collection of living plants and animals in the world, therefore an infinite gallery of colors and shapes. As artist and designer, I find in this jungle an inexhaustible source of inspiration. In this work I represent the Amazonia by a mythical woman warrior, called Amazon, surrounded by a big diversity of colorful plants, animals, and fantastic geography.
