Elemental Pendant - Many ancient cultures used the four elements (or similar system) to classify the physical world. The ancient Greeks, in their relentless and fascinating quest to distill this reality, used this tool to deconstruct the universe into four ideas. They balanced and complimented each other, creating a system of harmony. Aristotle added a fifth element that ran through all the elements, known as aether. It was the substance that flowed through all things, a quintessence of the universe.
The Elemental was created as an homage to the pursuit of knowledge. Deconstructing things, organizing and understanding systems, building ideas into something completely new, these all have propelled us humans to the lives we lead today. The four elements eventually evolved into our understanding of atoms, aether has formed into gravity, inertia, and light. And just as humanity as a whole has grown, we all have grown individually as well. I know my understanding of how to handle my emotions and decisions has certainly helped me lead a more fulfilling life, and its encouraging to think that same spirit lives in humanity itself. This Elemental celebrates the ideas that further us, that help us understand where and who we are. I’m excited to continue growing, and I hope this Elemental reminds you of your personal growth and ideas that fuel you forward. -Rutherford - 2" tall, all variants limited edition of 50.
