Details

This collection comprises of a quincunx of shapes based on the sacred 5 tower structures of Angkor Wat. Inspired by this architecturally striking and elegant temple complex in Cambodia, the collection mirrors its Ogive or Lotus shaped pointed temple apexes, its intricate columns and detailed patternation. Mixing modern, geometric forms and shapes with organic ruin-esque etched surfaces, pieces give the sense of the present and the past assimilating, reviving and renewing the Khmer aesthetic. The Atlas disk pendant is hand etched from original illustrations of the ruins of Angkor Wat. Intricate textures and surface details create beautiful intricacy. Modern, bold clean shapes contrast with organic, eroded textures evoking ancient treasures of distant centuries past. The Atlas charm signifies the natural, organic beauty of the world, contrasting with geometric man-made beauty of Angkor Wat. The Sikhara charm pendant signifies the connection between the cosmos above us and the earthly, tangible world we live in. The elegant tear drop shape of the Sikhara charm points towards the heavens and the stars and is named after the intricately carved spire structures that represent the many tiers that form the structure of the universe. The Sikhara charm also represents Mount Meru, -a sacred mountain in Buddhist cosmology with a quincunx of peaks. It is believed to be the centre of all the physical, metaphysical and spiritual universes. 18ct Yellow Gold Plated Brass. Colour: metallic
