The Lady Warrior
2019 Supreme WOW Award Winner
2019 Avant-garde Section Winner
2019 International Design: Asia Award
The Lady Warrior seeks to honour the strength of all women, and was inspired by the designer’s own mother. The Lady Warrior plays the role of daughter, wife and the most important role in society – mother. The Lady Warrior was born vulnerable but with life experience, she has become strong.
The metal elements – bronze emblazoned with intricate motifs – are symbolic of armour. Paper alone is fragile; the recycled paper which has been woven tightly together to form rope represents the intertwining of life experiences that have contributed to her inner strength.
