Projects by Ella Nitters

When I was five years old I saw an insect that had been eaten by ants and of which nothing remained except the shell. Through the holes in its anatomy one could see the sky. Every time I wish to attain purity I look at the sky through flesh.”

Salvador Dali (Spanish painter, 1904–1989)

Center Parcs Jungle Dome

In the cabana's in the Jungle Dome of Center Parcs Heijderbos you can spend an adventurous night in the jungle. Each cabana is named after an animal from the Indonesian island Siberut and I created murals for three of these: the Rhinoceros, the Atlas moth and the Civet cat. The illustrations depict the animal as if drawn in an old travellog by an explorer.
