A preview of the Awards Trophy and what it means
What it means and its creator: Rhythm ushers life in a groove of its own, uniquely carved for each individual and her/his movement that s/he executes. The trophies are designed to articulate the beat of life which turns our achievements into musical ensembles. The metallic twist and turns encapsulate the basic cadence and rhythmic pace of our work that we do in volition to keep the periodic balance of our share of the opposites. The good and the bad, the rich and the poor, the privileged and the deprived… etc. Material would be bronze/golden on wooden base.
