Chik-Chiky-Boom in Jungle
The summer window display of Hermès presents its theme of the year, ‘Nature at Full Gallop’ with a feast of passionate dance and music performed by jungle animals.
Artist Jackson Hong has created the festive jungle scene with the duo band of badger and baboon which dance all day long to the exciting music full of tropical cheer, along with other big and small animals. The visual motif of the display design is borrowed from several paintings of primitive jungles by Henri Rousseau, adding animation-style exaggeration to Rousseau’s simple and dreamy images. ‘Chik-Chiky-Boom’ comes from the lyrics of the song titled ‘Cuban Pete’ which expresses the sound of maracas, an essential instrument in Latin music. When the huge tiger shakes its body joyfully to the maracas with ‘Carnets d’Équateur’ necklace on, all the other animals begin to follow the rhythm naturally.
