A support-free printable model of a snake consuming an elephant; inspired by the watercolour illustations from the French book Le Petit Prince (1943).
'I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened them. But they answered: 'Frighten? Why should any one be frightened by a hat?' - The Little Prince, by Antoine De Saint-Exupery.
The initial concept behind transforming the illustations from 2D to 3D is to create resources to improve the experience of literature for the blind and partially sighted through rendering illustrations and graphics from well-known fiction into tactile objects and reliefs. Stay tuned :)
