ALMASIKA's Weekly Playlist

Feb 12, 2021

Spin ALMASIKA on Spotify. We've curated a weekly playlist for you to tune into the world of ALMASIKA. This week we are bringing you a playlist around stars and love inspired by the ancient symbols of our Sagesse Collection.

Our Sagesse Collection roots itself in the wisdom of ancient symbols —Stella, Veni, Vidi, Vici,  Universum— symbolic of proverbs of life and uniquely human aspirations. If not love, what greater aspiration exists?

Stella, the star, refers to the traditional Akan aphorism “Just as all the fruits do not ripen at the same time, so all the stars do not shine at the same time. Mine will shine someday.” The symbol traditionally named “My star will shine one day” depicts the seed in a fruit waiting to bloom.

Love and adoration have long held a place amongst the stars. Love stories are written in the stars, just look to the constellations of Andromeda and Perseus.  

This constellation recounts the story of the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, the king and queen of Ethiopia. Andromeda was chained to a rock as a sacrifice to the sea monster Cetus. She was saved by Perseus when he turned Cetus to stone using the dismembered head of Medusa and in some retellings slews Cetus with his diamond sword. Perseus and Andromeda were later married and after their death were commented in the stars by the gods.
