Sophia Phaistos Disc Large is inspired by the 4,000 year old artifact that was discovered in the Minoan palace-site of Phaistos, on the south coast of Crete. Since its discovery, scientists have been trying to decipher the mysterious ‘Phaistos Disc’, an enigma, a circular clay disc covered with inscribed symbols on both sides that are unlike any signs in any writing system known. The Disc of Phaistos is written in the Minoan script that records the Minoan language. This is the best sample of ‘Cretan hieroglyphics’, the scripts of the Phaistos Disc is also Minoan Linear A.
Sophia Phaistos Disc Large is part of Eternity Today collection created by Greek designer Alexandra, who imagined the first collection for Sophia-Greek for wisdom- using a palette of beauty, emotion and character. The precious classical heritage takes the shape of modern unique handmade objects.
