Discussing the cultural differences between countries is something every traveler loves to indulge in. In this vein, up and coming designers known as Sons of Wolves, have created a series of posters that depict these differences by looking at what we drink and the places that define where we live.
The artwork was commissioned by the prestigious P&O Cruises, in celebration of their new drinks selection, which feature gorgeous beverages from all over the world.
France is one of the favorites for a few notable reasons. It’s a land of grace, fine eateries, and of course, unrivaled wines.
In their posters they illustrate multiple landmarks of France including The Eiffel Tower, one of Europe’s ultimate romantic symbols. It was built in 1889 by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel and created to commemorate the 100 anniversary of the French Revolution, a bloody affair that eliminated the regal dictatorship, creating a democratically elected government in its wake. The tower effectively juxtaposes other landmarks and helps to illuminate the diverse history and culture of France.
A second landmark that is depicted and worth mentioning is the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Standing tall in the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, the monument represents Napoleon’s victories in 1806. Interestingly, it wasn’t actually commissioned until Louis-Philippe’s reign in 1836 when Napoleon was abdicated and exiled after the battle of Waterloo in 1815.
France is a country full of history, culture, and known world wide for it’s romantic aura. This poster of france definitely helps to highlight this.
