My entry for Toshibas Seriously Japanese Contest.
I decided to use 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa' for my entry.
I used the wave, water and 'organic' part of the Dragon to represent classic and traditional methods and ideas whilst the mechanical (inspired the 'Mecha' style of Anime and Manga) represents modern technology, innovation,methods and ideas.
The idea to use the Dragon as a symbol was to show a harmonic balance between classic and modern and that while modern technology is prevalent today, classic/traditional methods and ideas still inspire these advances and are not forgotten in today's society. The Japanese Dragon also represents strength and wisdom which plays an important part in the creation of modern technology and is also gained from the use of it.
