Sossusvlei, Namibia
The beautiful Sossusvlei in Namibia melts into the image of a beautiful Himba girl.


Namibia is a stunningly beautiful African country which is not yet a popular tourist destination. The magical and surreal sand dunes of Sossusvlei are an amazing and unique natural landmark with their flowing shapes, beautiful colors and contrasts. The same magic appearance has also the Himba tribe - indigenous peoples of Namibia. The design shows the beauty of the Namibian land in harmony with its people. The backside shows a view of Namib-Naukluft National Park in the shape and colors of the Namibian flag. Some of its inhabitants are also to be seen, others are hidden in the shapes and shadows.

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

I believe that the place of birth and one's homeland shapes the inside and outside of every human being. The stunningly beautiful sand dunes of Sossusvlei are the most suitable environment and backdrop for the beauty and magical appearance of the Namibian Himba people. This design shows the beauty of Namibia - as a land for its people.
