"SOME OF MY FONDEST AND MOST VIVID CHILDHOOD MEMORIES ARE OF SUMMERS SPENT IN GREECE UNDER THE STRONG ISLAND SUN AND AMIDST ANCIENT RUINS AND OLIVE GROVES. THE IMPRESSION THAT ENCHANTED ME THE MOST AND HAS FOREVER BEEN IMPRINTED IN MY MIND WAS THIS EXQUISITE SCENERY, WITH LIGHT EVERYWHERE AND THE EFFECT OF LIGHT UPON FORM." – NIKIAS, FOUNDER OF ESCULPTA –
Greece is a land of mythology where gods frequently stumbled upon common mortal passions and mortals were allowed to have an astonishing 'godlike' sense of understanding of proportion and beauty. This relation led to creating the main building blocks of western civilization as we know it. The fluid ancient monumental and sculptural imagery as well as the games played by the blessed Mediterranean sunlight are Nikias first source of inspiration.
Nikias lives on a small island in the Aegean Sea. It is here where he launched his successful brand in male erotic jewellery. Nikias' passion for jewellery lies in the primal instincts that drive man to declare his own presence in the cosmos and the existence of a unique spiritual identity that every man has a desire to declare. "The invention of jewellery is as ancient and as human civilization itself," Nikias says. "For thousands of years, man has instinctively performed this ritual by decorating their bodies - their most precious physical asset, which provides proof of their existence. All known cultures throughout history have indulged in this repetitive spiritual ritual. The enjoyment of physical decoration is a pure and universal inquiry of the critical spirit. At Esculpta we find this expression to be at heart deeply erotic."
Esculpta's collection of precious cockrings is created with care in limited quantities. Each item released by Nikias' workshop has been hand-made by artisans - masters in the ancient jewellery-making craft, to ensure overall perfection. The creative influence brought into the jewels transcends from Mediterranean Europe and Greece, the birthplace of the brand, and the strong artistic heritage of old Europe. Nikias continues: "Many think of jewellery merely as intrinsic decoration, or a dull display of status, the vision behind Esculpta engulfs far deeper and less explored dimensions, ancient and primordial, where desire for beauty is a spiritual and existential human conquest sparkling with life-energy and resonance."
Esculpta was founded in 2003 and has since then gradually grown into a global brand of men's erotic jewellery. The cockrings are unlike any cock ring you have ever seen. Crafted from the finest materials and shaped in integrated designs, they do not only bring sexual pleasure, they also are beautiful for the eye. "When I have finished creating a new piece, the feeling of reward is usually overwhelming. Sometimes it takes a year or more to complete every aspect of a new design and this is quite painful. Until one day, I let it go and I feel both relieved and moved because the prototype has 'grown' and is finished on my behalf. At this time, when a design leaves my hands to be worn, I know as a 'parent' that it leaves for a new existence and to resonate another persons energy, in new circumstances and at a new wave-length."
