Heart on Fire

My second collection of apparel prints inspired by geometric and full of magic designs from the Zakopane region in Tatra mountains, made for By the Moon (Kids on the Moon adult clothing line).

symbolism

This collection was abut passion and demons from the Tatra Mountains. The Eye of the Devil, weeping triangular tears, as well as the Horns attached to a heart remind, that even demons, who live in our souls, have some feelings and are capable of shedding a tear or two.

The Heart, encapsulating two symbols of moving Sun, is burning with desire, just like Tatra Mountains passionate folks, who don't joke about feelings.
