Conceptual Statement: Neg Mawon by Albert Mangonès
Neg Mawon stands strong and unafraid, as he blows the conch shell to alert the slaves that the enemies are approaching. The focus point was the connection of his mouth to the conch shell and the sound that it creates. The secondary concept was the connection from his hand to the spire of the shell which creates the concentric shape of the structure used throughout my design.
