Polaris Andino Lapel Pin

A black and gold enamel lapel pin designed by Layqa Nuna Yawar featuring the North Star, a humming bird, a crescent moon, and a family of migrants.

"1"x1" with a butterfly clasp backing.

“Polaris, or the North Star, has guided humanity moving across continents for our entire history and it is the star I came looking for after moving from the Andes of South America to the marshes of New Jersey in the USA. This is a symbol of hope and migrant imagination close to my heart in the same way that the hummingbird is. Hummingbirds have been with me since childhood and they represent people moving across continent the same way birds do and how they exist. This image represents a positive realignment of iconography, because it reframes the immigration sign created by the US Highway System and focuses on the perpetual act of moving across the earth as a natural phenomenon.” — Layqa Nuna Yawar
