We had the pleasure of using one of our favorite ESYMAI Illustrations, Shaolin; one part of a 5 piece series entitled “5 Boroughs”
This Series of line drawings by Sophia Chang are inspired by Wu-Tang-Clan's lyrics & based on the five borough in New York City. Shaolin, an ancient form of martial arts serves as an essential theme in Wu-Tang’s lyrics & a coined reference for New York’s, Staten Island. From this illustration, we were able to recreate Sophia’s work into a 3-Dimensional form & develop this exclusive jewelry piece.
