Drawing of Tribal Mickey by Garth Bowden
Drawing of the famous Mickey Mouse realized by Garth Bowden on a vintage paper that belong to his great grand-father, the peintre Theo Van Rysselberghe (1862-1926).
We could say that idol worship and spiritual ritual have been largely replaced by brand obsession and the ritual of shopping. Contemporary tribes are defined by consumer choices. The global might of the entertainment industry and large corporations spread their influence worldwide, and result in a cultural homogeneity. Mickey Mouse is one such soft power ambassador.
