Inspiration of the design:

Dalt Vila is Ibiza´s fortified old town surrounding the Castle. When the artist lived in Ibiza for the Summer of 2009 she spent many days and evenings exploring the labyrinth of tiny, twisting cobblestone streets amongst the bougainvillea covered white Ibicencan houses. Every time she went she would discover a new nook with a quaint shop, bar or restaurant to stop for a wine or a coffee and study Spanish or read. One evening she came across a shop inside one of the white houses run by the most fascinating hippie couple. They sold their art and all sorts of treasures. She bought a ceramic figure on a necklace that they explained was one of Ibiza´s ancient gods. It was then she realised the extent of the history of Ibiza and why it has a special vibe. Today she still has it in her shrine of trinkets to remind her of that Summer. Dalt Vila was established as early as the 7th century BC by the Carthaginians and was one of the Mediterranean´s most important cities trading delicacies, fish, salt, silver and gold. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and literally an outdoor museum.
