We require a large, square, luxurious silk scarf design featuring images of the Madonna breastfeeding christ (google images for design inspiration: Madonna and Bambino, Madonna breastfeeding Christ, Virgin feeding Christ etc. )
The scarf MUST contain images (or an image) from art history (hence no copyright problems) of the Madonna nursing/breastfeeding Christ. We have not stipulated which images are to be used in order to allow freedom and creativity to the designer.
The style of the scarf should be similar to a Hermes or Givenchy silk scarf, please see images below.
Obviously the images of the Madonna with child will need to manipulated/cropped/colour changed etc, but ideally the images/image will remain more of less recognisable.
The scarf needs to look very chic and luxurious, perhaps regal-esque, so lots of ornate golds, embellishments etc, perhaps gold chains etc.
Perhaps the female gender symbol can be used somewhere as well, but not mandatory. - For e.g.: http://depositphotos.com/3358584/st…wels..html
Perhaps gold nappy safety pins could be used around the boarder/somewhere within the design, like in the Age of Reason Scarfs – please see images below.
Also, if some gold handcuffs could be incorporated too, that would be excellent. http://www.age-of-reason-studios.co…ty-p2.aspx - shows handcuffs.
Please refer to all the images below for design inspiration - and refer to the following websites/pages:

http://hermesscarf.com/ - has a catalogue of all Hermes scarves
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SCARF IS GOING TO BE A PROTOTYPE, HOWEVER, IF DEEMED SUCCESSFUL. THE WINNING DESIGNER WILL BE REQUESTED TO DESIGN MULTIPLE ITEMS.
Please feel free to ask for further artistic direction if required.
We are really looking forward to seeing all the designs. Thank you for your consideration.
