Dutch artist Sander Reijgers has combined Nike jackets with Arafat scarf designs in a project entitled, 'The Cultural Contrasts of Symbolism.'

The distinctive Arab woven check, like that worn by Yasser Arafat, is fused with the Nike jacket designs to emphasize the juxtaposition of the two disparate cultures. Their politics, financial structures and religious underpinning all tie to 'The Cultural Contrasts of Symbolism' jacket designs, which are modeled by gay men.
