Kogi


I was flipping through a National Geographic and found this great article on the people of Colombia's Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. These drawings are loosely based off the photographs, i changed their tunics style and color a bit. The hat she is wearing is a Kogi villagers hat which is a traditional priests hat..i'm not sure if girls are allowed to wear it or not. The shape of the hat symbolizes the Sierra Nevada snowy peaks, although i made it a little more.....cartoony looking ;P  I'm going to do more drawings of their houses, they are truly beautiful!
