What is an Avatar?
An Avatar is a term adopted from Hinduism, it is Sanskrit for "descent" as in .. from heaven to earth in form of an incarnation of a deva (god)
In computer terms it can be understood as an incarnation from the real world to cyber-world, where an Avatar is an Incarnation or a Representation of a person or business in the form of a picture, logo or symbol.
We would like to introduce a special kind of Avatars - rather than a graphic or animated figure we like to opt for an original painting / portrait of a person or a symbol of a business.
This gives people the opportunity to be represented online in a professional unique way without showing a direct picture of themselves.
The portrait would be colour enhanced and designed, slightly abstracted with possible representing colours and shapes included as a form of metaphor for what that person possibly stands for.
As the saying goes.... a picture is worth a 1000 words .... meaning I better stop writing and show you some examples, and if you like the idea...
you may want to order your Avatar as a real portrait, and use a picture of that portrait as your online representation.
