Arte di mano, 'Self-Reproducing Lizard'
Arte di mano represents its symbol of a “self-reproducing lizard” using a tessellation shape based on mathematics and geometrics. Tessellations are the tiling method to cover surface or space by extending one or more uniform geometric patterns with no overlaps and no gaps. This originates from the Latin tessella, which means a small square stone or tile used in the ancient Roman mosaic. Its most representative examples are the arabesque in the Alhambra and the Korean traditional pattern dancheong. Meanwhile, we can easily find tessellation shapes in our daily life: pedestrian pavements, tiles in the bathroom, etc.
Arte di mano’s self-producing lizard is inspired by tessellations to constantly create unique patterns through rotation and movement. Our symbolic representation reflects Arte di mano’s commitment to high quality hand-made products and exquisite workmanship standards. Our uncompromising devotion to quality highlights Arte di mano’s essence to make our customers’ minds and souls reverberated.
Interestingly, some lizard species can half- or full-clone their own genes through self-reproduction. Now Arte di mano’s products are favorably evaluated as the world-best accessory brand specific to the high-end German camera, Leica. However, our quality-oriented expansion is constantly in progress, like a self-reproducing lizard, in the international market.
