About Sirius: Elementary geometry dedicated to the bright blue star in the heavens, Sirius is an extraordinary cabinet dressed in fine saddle-stitched leather with delicate detail. Sirius is the brightest star system in the night sky and a strong marker for several cultures worldwide.
The heliacal rising of Sirius (Sothis) marked the flooding of the Nile in Ancient Egypt and the «dog days» of summer for the ancient Greeks, while to the Polynesians in the Southern Hemisphere the star marked winter and was an important reference for their navigation around the Pacific Ocean. Dogons, Vikings, Persians, Chineses, Cherokees or Inuits myths were also led by this mysterious star.
The blue shade of the leather is inspired by the blue cloth covering the Ark of the Covenant and the five cylinders represents the musical fifth: the brand and the basis of the tone and crowned the perfect match, the Harmony. About the Labradorite stone, lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms.
Labradorite is also the most powerful protector of the mineral kingdom, creating a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthening natural energies from within.
