The basis for our creative experiments are the elements of sacred geometry – shapes and figures that underlie life and the universe.
Hexagonal honeycombs of bees, spiral shells of molluscs, unique patterns of snowflakes are forms of sacred geometry that we can see in nature. The ancient Greeks believed that our entire vast world consists of interconnected geometric shapes. Plato asserted that the atoms of the first elements (ether, fire, air, water and earth) have the form of regular polyhedra – tetrahedron, icosahedron, octahedron, hexahedron, dodecahedron. Medieval theologians argued that God is a geometer by nature.
The forms of sacred geometry are universal and are used in all religions, in art, architecture, and philosophy. Each element has a deep symbolic meaning. You can take this into account when choosing a mandala or a lamp for yourself.
THE CIRCLE is among the oldest geometric sacred symbols. It represents unity, wholeness, and infinity. Pythagoras called the circle “monad,” the most perfect of creative forms, without beginning or end. Ring, wheel, sphere, round – the circle appears to us in different forms. These wonderful mandalas are also circular in shape to remind us of the infinite and the perfect.
THE SQUARE is the basis of the manifested world, a form of order and perfection, the support of the geometry of space. This figure symbolizes stability. With these lamps, feel the vibrations of the square: reliability, calmness, order, wisdom, honor.
HEXAGON is all over the place in nature, from the biggest planets all the way down to microscopic compounds. On Saturn’s north pole, there’s an enduring cloudformation. It’s a very distinct hexagon. Each of the hexagon’s six sides is bigger than the Earth’s own diameter! The most obvious natural hexagon is the honeycomb, the geometrically perfect home for bees and their honey. They themselves are encoded with the shape: the hexagon is written into their eyes. Because a honeycomb is naturally made up of hexagonal prisms, it was considered by philosophers to be the manifestation of divine harmony in nature. Its construction was associated with insight and wisdom. Our lamp also share the sacred geometry of the hexagon and its vibrations: divine power, majesty, wisdom, love, mercy, and justice.
SPIRALS reflect the development of the universe and humanity. The ancient Indians believed in the Cosmic Serpent coiled on the axis of the Earth, and modern people believe that the vital energy, kundalini, is hidden at the base of the spine in the form of a snake coiled in rings. In ancient Egyptian temples, the spiral was depicted as a cobra on the pharaoh’s helmet. In Freemasonry, the spiral staircase expresses the idea of spiritual growth. Clamshells, a water vortex, a DNA helix, the stars of a galaxy—we see this form at its smallest and largest.
