Ygartua’s fascination with ancient civilizations and the Samurai Warriors
“It seemed that some instinctive and natural inquisitiveness drawn from my Basque Heritage, one of the oldest known ethnic groups in the world, was acting as a force which impelled me to constantly search for the mystical and historical quality of our ancient civilizations.”
“The exotic description and personification of a warrior and their visual presence is so overpowering that their spiritual philosophy is to be honoured.”
“The subject matter is easily adapted as a design concept, the action combined with their incredible outfits with their fighting swords creates a concept in design not to be equaled.”
