SPOTLIGHT SERIES: THE MOON
This design forms part of the Divination Celebration collection, originally released in Spring/Summer 2021.
This collection references the playful, colourful and exquisitely hand-crafted masks and costumes celebrated at FESTIMA, the Festival International des Masques et des Arts, held each year in Dédougou, Burkina Faso. In the vein of divination, this collection was also based on antique European tarot cards, their symbolisms and their meanings.
As the spirits begin to answer the creatures call, fresh water seeps up from the arid ground. The Painted Wolf and Azawakh play the roles of the wild dog and tame dog, overlooked by the Crowned Crane as The Moon. Representing the two sides of nature, they twin their movements to follow the Senufo beliefs. The two towers represent the stability they crave.
AVAILABLE IN TWO DIFFERENT COLOURWAYS
