- This poster is highlighting the spiritual relationship between a female warrior and lion's sculptures, under a khmer traditional looks. The fighter is practicing a traditional cambodian martial art called "Bokator", which mean "to beat the lion". But I wanted something much more smooth, peaceful and spiritual, as honoring the lions. Guardians of the temples.
The female fighter is directly inspired by Tévi Say, a french cambodian roots female MMA fighter. She is designed with muscles and strong shapes. Not sensual, not sexy, only a strong body and a strong mind. Because martial arts are so deeply anchored in our asian cultures, it is a way to remind our cultural and spiritual legacy, our peaceful mind.
