I was asked to design a handmade incense coil packaging for the Tibet Culture and Craft Center in Tibet.
I explored the transitional Tibetan drawings. The smooth lines of illustration works so well with wooden containers. Together it conveys a great combination of craftsmanship and nature.
I turned the Buddha hand gesture into a modern illustration and had it engraved on the consistently textured, light colored wood cylinder container. The design, as a whole, celebrates the belief of the craftsmen and the landscape from which this craft is bred.
