About the ArtworkWith a passion for Japanese origami, Masturah Sha'ari adopted an illustration of the "origami" technique onto her Büffel and called it Resilience. During the artist's research for creating her painted figurine, Sha'ari spent numerous hours manipulating a number of origami bulls and following various patterns so as to understand the folds and twists, and to then be able to interpret it onto her Büffel. Some failed, some succeeded but Sha'ari persevered nevertheless, and transformed the design of the Büffel into abstract geometric patchwork shapes bursting with colours and textures. The bull is resilient like the artist. It is a symbol of strength and perseverance, "To achieve a work of art, the journey may be filled with pain and difficulties, and even joy. The reward is ultimate satisfaction" Sha'ari exclaims. "In Minangkabau culture", where the artist was born into, "the bull or 'kerbau' symbolises triumph of the human spirit. This goes with the qualities of the Braun Büffel brand, which upholds values of impeccable quality through immaculate craftsmanship".
