The new 404 Studio’s collection is inspired by the film La Planète Sauvage. (1973) a French cult film based on the novel by Stefan Wul and directed by René Laloux. Through science fiction and animation for adults a psychological drama beggins showing us the superiority of a race that considers itself the legitimate owner of the planet (The Draags) and us, the human race, are treated as vermin (Oms) which makes us reflect and adopt a new perspective on how we interact with another human beings, animals and the environment.  A second reading about both cultures concludes that there are no good or bad, but positions of ignorance and power.

In this collection, 404 Studio extracts the concept of ​​education, equality and respect between living beings.  As a visual reference, adopts the use of the colors and shapes of the aliens, the landscape and the shapes of nature. The aesthetics of the film and its drawings can be related to the "Codex Serafinianus", the illustrated encyclopedia that appeared a few years after the film's premiere. In both cases we can appreciate the creation of elements of nature, created from the imagination and surreal inspiration as if it were "The Garden of Earthly Delights".
