ENDURANCE

EXCELLENCE

Representing excellence in human achievement emblematic of the sacrifice needed to produce works of outstanding quality.

An enduring, timeless quality expressing a value that transcends cultural trends, historical relevance, political motivations.

BALANCE

balanced, serpentine approach towards both consonance and dissonance, beauty and ugliness, symmetry and asymmetry.

"We are tasked with giving birth to the old in a new time. When something long since passed away comes back again in a changed world, it is new. What is new redeems us, and the resolution of this task is man's salvation."

 

 

"To give birth to the ancient in a new time: that, is creation."
