As an avid fan of retro-futuristic art I think it helps us to discover the limitless possibilities of what our society could be like which we could draw inspiration from. It also furthers the understanding of world we live in and helps us critic and praise it.

Kazakhs – Kazakhstan

The Kazakhs are a semi-nomadic tribe who have been travelling through the mountains and valleys of Kazakhstan since the 15th century.

Along with taming wild horses, one of their most famous ancient traditions is hunting with eagles. It is seen as the highest form of art and dedication. The annual Golden Eagle Festival sees wolf-skin clad Kazakhs take to the mountains on horseback and golden eagles soar into the skies in celebration of this unique heritage.
