The Vascobelo bowler hat is a reference to the bowler hat that has also been painted by René Magritte. Besides a hint to surrealism, it also communicates elegance. Vascobelo storks typically wear it.

René Magritte (1898 – 1967) was a Belgian Surrealist artist. He became well known for creating a number of witty and thought-provoking images. Often depicting ordinary objects in an unusual context, his work is known for challenging observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality. His imagery has influenced pop art, minimalist art and conceptual art.

This is an essential part of our Vascobelo DNA. See attached a famous painting of René Magritte.
