Protector Hanitu – The barking deer waking up the Sun

Date of Creation: 16/11/2021

List of Materials: Nickel silver plated with 20K gold , thread, enamel, silk organza

Dimensions: 12 X 7 X 1.5

Photographer's Name: Heng Lee

Model's Name: Tahai Palalavi

Conceptual Statement: In the mythology of the Bunun (one of indigenous people in Taiwan) tribe, "Hanidu" plays a very important role as a protector and guide throughout people's lives, and also serves as a mediator between humans and nature. This concept is similar to the idea of a Patronus in Harry Potter, where your Patronus grows and evolves with age and life experience. The "Protector Hanidu" series of brooches takes inspiration from the spiritual flora and fauna of the Bunun tribe, combining fiber and cloth materials with traditional Bunun cross-stitch embroidery to depict natural textures. These brooches are like protector that wore on the right side of the chest, allowing for a dialogue with the heart and the passing down of ancient stories.
