Taking inspiration from ancient Greek mythology, Visconti already created his first masterpiece in 2012 dedicated to the legend of Arachnis. In this spirit, the Daedalus pen was born.
“The world is a labyrinth from which it is impossible to escape.”
Jorge Luis Borges
Daedalus created a Labyrinth in Crete, in which a Minotaur was imprisoned. As told by the Greeks, the hero of Athens Theseus volunteered to kill the Minotaur, finding his way back with the help of Ariadne’s thread.
THE LABYRINTH IN A PEN
In Homer’s language, daidala refers to handcrafted objects. Hence the origin of this unique creation by Visconti. The cut-out left by the filigree represents the pattern of the labyrinth and the head of the Minotaur. The resin has a silver-coloured powder added to give the effect of stardust from the sky watching over the landscape of the labyrinth.
