Salute 1: The Unknown Nazca Masters

July 21, 2016

 

Primitive?

The ancient Peruvian Nazca culture are famous for their geoglyphs (Nazca Lines). They were also skilled character designers! They lived in a powerfully creative cauldron of innovation.

 

While it is best left untouched, this stylised killer whale vessel would not look out of place as a logo for a multi-national company or a character on the latest award winning animation.

 

Look at the perfect circles for the eye detail and beautiful outlines, Adobe Illustrator eat your heart out!

 

I would like to ask the unknown ancient artist what is going on with the hand and chin. Answers on a postcard...

 

Anyway, I salute you mystery Nazcas!
