Handmade “Wheel” earrings with semi precious stones, exclusively designed for the Artpoint Papasotiriou.
The wheel is one of the most ancient symbols. Its central point depicts the sun or the center of the universe. During Antiquity, the wheel was a symbol of agility, rotation, time, and the natural flow of energy. When the wheel was invented and carts and carriages were made, the exchange of material assets became easier and faster. The first wheels were wooden with a hole in the center of the axis. The ancient Greeks invented the cart; a simple basket with a wheel. A contemporaneous research has shown that the Antikythera mechanism has 30 spur gears which rotate around ten axes. The spur gear technology was developed -among others- in Watchmaking where it appeared and flourished in the 13th and 14th century. For 3.500 years, the wheel has been used as a symbol in occultism and secret religious organizations. It was the main symbol of god Sun, and was dedicated to the solar deities in the passage of history, especially in the ancient European cultures. Some ancient civilizations associated the wheel with the lightning because people believed that various gods produced fire by rotating the wheel. In the ancient Greek tradition, the wheel is a symbol of Zeus, the god of lightning, and Apollo, the god of the sun, where the wheel represents the sun chariot. Sometimes, it emblematizes god Dionysus as well.
