Anatomy of the Olympics

The design that I found myself looking at was the main Olympics logo for the Vancouver Olympics. Throughout the years the Olympics have used a very simple version of a human figure usually with simple colors and symbols that relate to the region the events are taking place in. For instance in Athens the design of the logo was very representational of ancient Greece. In the Sydney Olympics they used part of an image of a boomerang for the lower torso of the human figure since the boomerang is a prominent symbol of Australia. And now in the Vancouver Olympics the image seems to portray the native people of Canada such as the Inuit and tribes of the Pacific. As you can tell most of the designs from the logos of the Olympics come from cultural representations of mainly primitive designs.
