Illustration / Identity
Under the South East Asia countries, we were given the choice to decide on a country to work on. I have chosen Batak as it is not a widely known country. However it is known for its very traditional and cultural wood statues, I picked one of the mythical belief in their country to collate ideas for this illustration. Adapting the story of a pair of siblings who fell in love with each other and were turned into statues, for their misbehavior and also led it to affect other members of the family. I illustrated the idea of this story into a magic staff as magic staffs were commonly found in Batak.
