The inauguration of the Panama Canal in 1914 meant a great deal more than the opening of a passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans: It actually signified the “shrinking” of our planet, since it facilitated closer contact between continents to the benefit of exploration and trade among nations. With this event, nothing was ever again as far away as it had been before. In short, the Panama Canal was (and is) the key to empowering and expanding the great human adventure, long before the term “globalization” came into vogue.
Each window was designed to represent a scene from the voyage of a “Post-Panamax” class ship known as “The Orange Horse” across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, casting off from the French city of Saint Malo and passing through the Panama Canal.
Striking a parallel with the rite of passage that crossing the continent through the Panama Canal signifies, the voyage that the artist portrays in six show windows provides a link between Hermés and the Canal, with the great human adventure as a common denominator.
And that is an adventure with which, by its own experience, Hermés is more than familiar.
