Necklace for Tincal lab Challenge 2016 "Jewelry and Cinema"
"Inspired by the spirits of “Princess Mononoke”, “Kodama” is set of two pieces (ring and necklace) with cartoonish features and an overall organic look. Based on Hayao Miyazaki’s vision of the ancient spirits, Ânia Garradas focused on their fragile appearance, in contrast with the robust tree branches they inhabit (according to the Japanese legend). The “Kodama” in the movie simbolize the life of the forest, and according to folklore, they’re free spirits that roam the mountains and the forests. Ânia tried to capture their essence by allying natural and somewhat rugged looking shapes with coloured details and polished elements that simbolize the magic and delicate soul of both the characters in the movie “ Princess Mononoke” and the actual tale of Japanese folklore."
