NDTC SHINING LIGHT AWARDS

Windhoek, 20th of July 2008. Trau Bros Diamond Namibia is sponsoring a piece from a Namibian artist in the competition Shining Light Awards, organized by NDTC (sales arm from the De Beers group in Namibia).

This sponsorship is part of Trau Bros commitment to develop and promote Namibian design talents in the world.

Birds Nest is the name of the design selected, a creation from the young artist Nicodemus Immanuel, who studies at the Katutura Community Art Center in Windhoek Namibia (KCAC). KCAC is dedicated to the art development in a previously disadvantaged community in Namibia and has become a symbol of the transformation of the Namibian society.

The design, Birds Nest, embodies the artist father’s teaching, that achieving something big in life does not happen from one day to the other; like a bird building its nest, a person needs to shape his future piece by piece with patience and perseverance.
