Ancient Greece

My reference to aesthetics can be traced back to Neolithic settlements, the Acropolis of Tiryns with the Cyclopean Walls, Cycladic idols or the harmonious aerial photographs of excavations. Magic rituals and the hope of humankind that with fire, gemstones and knots can gain control over destiny are reflected in the jewellery. They gave them strength to confront not only enemies of the terrestrial world, but also their demons from beyond. Jewellery was a companion for eternity, emphasizing faith and immortality.
