THE DESIGN

Stemma design is inspired by crowns and the symbolisms that they carry. A crown is a traditional, heavily symbolic, form of head adornment. A crown will traditionally represent power, victory, honour, glory as well as immortality and righteousness. In art, the crown has been seen depicted as an emblem, either in the form of a flower wreath, oak leaves or thorns, and always carrying a heavily symbolic connotation. In religious art, a crown of stars is used similarly as a halo. 

 

In modern art, and more embedded into pop culture, the crown has been most notably used by Basquiat, with his three-pointed crown which became one of his most recognisable visual symbols. The Basquiat's crown deals with two themes - crowns and heads - proclaiming a deep struggle between the dichotomy of self-worth and marginalisation, between divinity and destitution, and possibly the overlap between the material world and the intellectual one.
