THE STORY BEHIND OUR SYMBOL

THROUGHOUT MY TWENTY YEARS OF TRAVELLING IN FOUR DIFFERENT CONTINENTS,

I HAVE BECOME A NATURAL STUDENT OF SYMBOLISM. WHAT FASCINATES ME MOST WHILE

DISCOVERING NEW CULTURES IS SIMILARITIES OF THE HUMAN INSTINCT,

WITNESSING EACH TIME THAT WHAT UNITES US ALL, IS THE SIMPLE BEAUTY

OF JUST BEING HUMAN. AS MUCH AS WE EXPRESS OURSELVES DIFFERENTLY

AROUND THE WORLD THROUGH RITUALS, CEREMONIES AND ARTS, AT THE CORE

WE SHARE THE SAME NATURE. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED TO ONE ANOTHER AND

TO THE UNIVERSE. WE ARE HUMAN.

 

ONE PARTICULAR SYMBOL APPEARED ON MY ROAD EACH TIME I TRAVELLED AND

CAUGHT MY HEART. DEEPLY. A SYMBOL THAT I CAME ACROSS, ON THE HIGHLANDS

OF THE HIMALAYA, THE PLAINS OF AFRICA, ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS OF ANATOLIA

AND THE MIDDLE EAST. INSTINCTIVELY I STARTED COLLECTING ARTIFACTS ADORNED

WITH THIS SYMBOL THAT GREW ON ME MORE AND MORE WITH TIME. DIFFERENT ERAS,

DIFFERENT GEOGRAPHIES, ALTITUDES AND CONTINENTS, AND YET THE VERY SAME SIMPLE DRAWING.

A CIRCLED DOT.

 

THIS UNIVERSAL SYMBOL, TALISMAN, IS SO OLD THAT THERE IS NOT ONE EXPLICATION

TO ITS MEANING AND CARRY MANY INTERPRETATIONS

 

IT’S SAID TO REPRESENT THE SUN, THE PROTECTIVE EYE, THE PERPETUAL MOVEMENT OF LIFE

AND ONE SINGLE MOMENT. CONSCIOUSNESS, THE CIRCLE REPRESENTING THE EXPANSION OF OUR

SOUL WITH THE DOT IN THE MIDDLE CONNOTATING THE SOURCE.

 

AT FIRST, I STARTED CARRYING THE SYMBOL AS A TATTOO ON MY LEFT ARM, THEN STARTED

USING IT IN MY EARLIER DESIGNS. THROUGH THE YEARS WITH MY FAITH GROWING MORE DEEPLY

WITH ITS STRENGTH AND PROTECTION, IT’S CRAFTED VERSION, REPRESENTING FOUR CORNERS OF THE WORLD,

HAS BECOME THE LOGO OF TOHUM AND MY PERSONAL INTERPRETATION OF WHAT IT MEANS

“TO BE HUMAN”.

 

NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE IN THE WORLD, WE ALL DREAM, WE ALL LOVE, WE ALL HOPE. THE WISH OF

BEING PROTECTED, ACCOMPANIED AND SUPPORTED BELONGS TO ALL OF US.

 

TOHUM’S “REBIRTH” TALISMAN INVITES US TO AN INTERNAL PERSONAL JOURNEY THROUGH

THE CONTINUOUS REBIRTH OF OUR BEING AND THE CONTINUOUS GROWTH OF OUR SOUL.

 

MY WISH, IS TO SHARE THE SENSE OF SERENITY AND PEACE I FEEL CARRYING THIS

ANCIENT AND POWERFUL SYMBOL WITH YOU ALL.

 

WITH LOVE,
