No matter how many times Stella is told that she is not qualified, not able, not allowed, not approved – she perseveres and finds a way! As a creative team we were inspired by her fighting spirit.
The pivotal moment in the story that we bounced off to make our creative response was: “Ignition……We Have Lift Off”. Our dome is designed to look intergalactic with a fist powering through barriers that reaches for the stars.
The fist is symbolic of Stella’s strength, as we see it bursting through the glass ceiling – championing the rights of those discriminated against and told “no”. It is decorated with touches of Stella by way of a delicate lace cuff covered in stars and her custom colours of white and orange are reflected on her nails.
Stella is a star who has championed her way into the ‘Hall of Astronaut’ fame. She also paved the way for many other animals to aim for the stars and live their dreams – no matter the obstacles.
