Young Designer Throw – Ourboros


In stock

Designed by Jade Taylor named ‘Ouroboros’.

‘Ouroboros’ is an ancient Greek symbol that depicts a serpent eating its own tail as a symbol and metaphor for rebirth/recreation and infinity. The sweeping arches represent the re-interpretation of the traditional ouroboros symbol: the lines follow a continuous path where they disappear and re-emerge into its former self, an infinite cycle of re-creation and dismantling of itself.


Jade Taylor is a 21 year old, multi-disciplinary artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. She is currently studying Communication Design at the University of Johannesburg which embodies the importance of the visual relationship between design and the message it communicates.
