ASTRA is the term of the Latin language which means "The direction towards the stars". An example of this is the famous Latin motto "per aspera ad astra" which means "through hardships to the stars". In reality, the origins of this expression always derive from a work of the Latin writer Lucio Anneo Seneca, who in his work "Hercules furens" wrote "non est ad astra mollis e terris via", that is, there is no simple way from earth to stars. According to the legends of ancient Rome, the possibility of becoming stars was in fact reserved only for heroes because they had a fearless life, by definition full of harshness and dangers.
This chandelier represents a masterpiece of the artistic craftsmanship of Murano, complex in its realization as each piece must be made with care in order to be able to combine with the other pieces with harmony and without interference to create the shape of a star and its rays of light. A job that only a highly experienced master glassmaker can do.
