1 SMALL MEDITATION CUP – PAIR

(print on plate or cup, ø = 5,8 cm, h = 7 cm, ceramics)


The special characteristics of the cup are its shape and design. The shape of the cup comes from the tradition of ancient civilisations: when the forefinger touches the thumb on a special handle, we subconsciously close the circle. This is the most perfect and spiritually expressive form of prehistoric traditions. The thumb symbolizes God, and the index finger the earthly man. While living on Earth, the man has to become one with God in order to find the five earthly truths, which can help him achieve spiritual transcendence: these truths are love, truth, righteousness, peace and non-violence.

GOLDEN LINGAM CUP

3 GOLDEN LINGAM CUP

(ø = 6 cm, h = 7,5 cm, porcelain, gilt)


Lingam has an egg-shaped form, which is the most perfect, mathematical elliptical form on Earth.
The shape of an egg has always represented the God that has no shape. All shapes come from it and return into it. Therefore “Everything is nothing and nothing is everything.”
On the 15th of February 1999 at 6:21 AM, the artist and his wife Tatjana were in Puttaparthi, where they saw the teacher Sai Baba give birth to the LINGAM golden egg through his mouth. This ceremony of creation called LINGODBHAWA can only be performed by a POORNA AVATAR – a deity incarnated in human flesh. This is the mystery of the man-God!
This cup has been designed to commemorate the vision and the memory of a real miracle, and it contains the deepest understanding and awareness of the NATURE of man on Earth. We thank BHAGAVAN SRI SATHYI SAI BABA for his permission to make a REPLICA of this golden egg and the cup modelled based upon it!

103 EMPRESS BARBARA – collection of cups

5 EMPRESS BARBARA – collection of cups

(small – ø = 9 cm, h = 6 cm, ceramics)


This collection of cups symbolises the spirituality and beauty of Barbara Celjska (Barbara of Celje), daughter of Herman Celjski, who was probably born in 1387 on Slovenian soil.
Barbara of Celje married Sigismund of Luxemburg, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, when she was just a minor, and thus became Empress Barbara. She loved beauty and kindness, for she was a true beauty herself and represented the then concept of beauty and kindness. She was a great woman and remains a symbol of culturally conscious women.
The collection of cups, shaped in the form of a cupola or a ball with four legs, represents the heavenly world that stands on the four points of the Earth. The cup’s handle is imprinted with a form of the antique holy hold which had a special meaning of holiness during ritual drinking. The touching of the thumb and forefinger, joined together in the holy circle (mudre), represents God. God is represented by the thumb, whilst human ego is represented by the forefinger. God and human nature must always join together in life on Earth.

104 ENERGY CUP

6 ENERGY CUP

(large – ø = 7 cm, h = 10 cm,
small – ø = 6 cm, h = 8 cm, porcelain, gilt)


The energy cup belongs to the collection of St. Mark’s cupolas.
It has three points representing the Christian symbolism of the Holy Trinity: FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST. The handle of the cup consists of two circles that symbolise the unification of the human and divine into a whole, i.e. cupola vault.
The author first conducted research on these ENERGY CUPS 40 years ago in St Mark's church and in courses led by Giuseppe Mazzariol, Italo Zannier and Mario Deluigi at the AI CARMINI college of industrial design in Venice, where he also studied church domes.

7 CUPOLA OF ST. MARK CUP

(large – ø = 8,5 cm, h = 5,5 cm,
small – ø = 6,5 cm, h = 4,5 cm, porcelain, gilt)

The cupola of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice stems from the old Christian symbolism of God from AIA SOFIA, the first Christian cathedral in Istanbul. Since man is a symbolic creature, his oldest form of communication is the symbol. The cupola features the vault of heaven or man’s divine creature feeling the ground beneath its feet on the capitals representing life on Earth.
The Roman Pantheon with a cupola has an opening on the vault featuring the soul leaving the body through the “THIRD EYE” in the world of “GOLDEN BLOSSOM or HEAVEN.” The symbolism of man’s immortality, represented by a cupola or a ball, is in this way carried on throughout time. The golden egg or golden lingam represents the golden blossom of man’s immortality with the same symbolism.
This ideal cupola shape was transmitted into the porcelain cups collection. It has three points representing the Christian symbolism of the Holy Trinity: FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST. The handle of the cup is a circle that symbolise God.

8, 9 OSCAR RITUAL CUP

(ø = 9,5 cm, h = 6 cm, porcelain, gilt)


I dedicate the ritual dish to a dear friend of mine, a physician Dr. Oscar Keleminovich, whose knowledge incorporates Western and Indo-Chinese scientific achievements. His knowledge of cosmic medicine enables him to perceive the healing sciences as an art of recovery of the soul and body, the latter representing a godlike being to him. His knowledge comprises the knowledge of art and medicine from the times of the Hyperboreans and the Megalithic culture – the first civilisations on the planet.
The ritual dish symbolically captures this vibration and represents a union of the East and West and the knowledge that brings benefits to each and every Man-God.


10 “GOLDEN RUDRAKSHA” CUP

(ø = 7 cm, h = 7,5 cm, porcelain, gilt)


The shape of the cup is based upon the radiesthetic analysis of positive vibrations in the Oskar ritual cup and other research of ancient ritual bowls. Keeping the ritual contents in special vessels with PRANA cosmic energy enhances our lives.
The holder is taken from the original “GIANT RUDRAKSHA.” Rudraksha is the holiest of fruits, known both in India and Tibet. It is the “highest” fruit of a tree in the world, having the power to collect cosmic energy. It is special in that it has roots.
Rudraksha is similar to the Slovenian GIANT WALNUT – KROTOVNIK, its spiritual importance in the rural cultural heritage being equal to that of the Rudraksha.
The Rudraksha on our cup is the Rudraksha that is particularly valued in the cultures of the Far East that are being explored today.

109 MAGIC COLLECTION


The YIN dish and YANG dish, ALPHA and OMEGA, SHIVA and SHAKTI, MAN and WOMAN…
The CIRCLE and DOT plate. The circle symbolises INCARNATIONS and the CIRCLE OF LIFE, but there is a dot symbolising the number one – ONE = GOD.
The intertwining of the forms above and below, of the dish and the plate, signifies divinity, the magical play of man in the universe, as the highest form of human transcendence. It also signifies the human cosmic rise and fall within civilisations, but everything together leads to insight, searching of oneself, to the eternal self and to eternal, pure unity or LOVE.
In this way, this magic collection is to introduce one consciously or unconsciously into this divine PLAY of the human being.
