The ’Stone Stories’ necktie is designed in a marble print representative of the natural materials landscape architect, Maya Lin utilizes in her artistic pieces. Famous for her design of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC, the leather strips at the tail ends of the necktie are symbolic of the black stone wall that is the base of the design. We hope this necktie is a subtle yet powerful accessory to your clothing ensemble, similar to how Maya Lin’s designs live within existing landscapes.
The necktie comes with a storyboard that highlights Maya Lin’s accomplishments, including a guest illustration by Emanuella Israel.
About Maya Lin
Not many people can claim the career starter that was thrust upon famed artist and landscape architect, Maya Lin. In 1981, while still a senior at Yale University, Maya’s design submission for the Vietnam Veterans’s Memorial in Washington DC may have only received her a B+ from her professor, but was selected as the winning design among the more than 1400 national competition entries. At the ripe age of twenty-one, her resume was already more impressive than most of the older, male counterparts she was about to be surrounded by.
