It invites to to reflect on the passage of time, the nature of memory, and the beauty of mortality. the gravity of these questions is reflected in brutalist-inflected volumes of onyx, and is balanced by the elegance of clean lines and exquisite delicacy of the details

Hand carved in onyx by the master craftsmen at atelier saint-jacques in France, the collection is available in strictly limited edition. With works of supreme serenity, the principio collection invites our stillness and deepest pondering on the fundamental questions of life
