Notes

“Vigilance et Persévérance”, created by Laure Ridel, realized by Visconti, Florence, for Boutique Point Plume ®, Paris This writing instrument uses the different Freemasonic symbols, the “mercury”-coloured silver body, rotates and thus allows it to be positioned on everyone’s choice. Its large box is inspired by a “cabinet de reflexion”. If symbols have a meaning for everyone, they are omnipresent among Freemasons. Freemasonry being initiatory, it is by essence moral and spiritual, in its foundations and in its aims. Initiation, experienced as an inner process, is a journey towards self-realization, towards the unity of being. This model is an exclusivity, made in 2015-2016, for the Boutique Point Plume ® by Laure Ridel; it is limited to 357 pieces. Everyone will understand the meaning of this number. In Freemasonry there are many numbers of importance in a symbolic sense. Such numbers as 3, 5, 7 and 9 each have symbolic meaning to them. Some of this symbolism lies in Kabalistic notions, while others are representative of masonic teachings.
