Poster: The Swastika

This poster was submitted for the ’Pahit Manis’ poster exhibition, at the National Art Gallery of Malaysia. The theme of the exhibition was the ambiguity of good and evil. Are they two opposites of just many shades of grey?

The swastika was not the invention of Adolf Hitler. It is in fact an ancient symbol that have appeared in many ancient cultures. This poster illustrates the many origins and incarnations of the swastika symbol which before the Nazi’s (mis)use would have stayed a benevolent symbol.
