This strongly emblematic pen celebrates mans ongoing fascinations with powerful invisible forces that shape destiny, forces as vibrant and inescapable today as they were in the ancient world. Embodied in the Invisibilis are esoteric symbolic images that invite reflection on themes that are boundless yet rooted in the particular. These symbols have endured because they capture mans imagination found in the deep soul embedded in life and personality. They express the elementary forces of mystery and wonder that lies hidden just beyond the visible world. The world esoteric has a secret inner meaning. At the beginning, with the correlative term esoteric, it occurs in the Ancient Greek Mysteries to indicate the initiates (eso - inner) as opposed to these who were not (eso - outer) It was later also used to indicate the teachings reserved by certain philosophers for a limited number of disciples, as opposed to those open to all, a distinction probably adopted by the Pythagoreans, attributed to Plato and recently by certain writers also to Aristotle.
An ever present phenomenon in every place and time, esotericism requires symbols which man needs to "grasp" what could otherwise not be represented and therefore develop constructive reflections. The very word "grasp" is in itself symbolic as it derives from the gesture of a hand reaching out to touch. The symbol conceals and at the same time reveals. The same sign may instruct in different or even opposite ways(a dragon is not always an enemy, a heart does not always signify love). Every part of Invisibilis draws from a vast heritage of cultures to demonstrate the universal presence of certain symbols from Europe to Asia and from Africa to the New World. Line#011415
