I created an Ensō and placed it in the middle of the label I proposed for Infinite variables X one bottle.
An Ensō (circle) is a sacred symbol in Zen Buddhism and a common subject in Japanese calligraphy. It symbolizes the beginning and the end of all things, emptiness and fullness, presence and absence. The ink stroke created through one single movement eliminates the possibility of modifying and challenges its own reproducibility. An Ensō is a simple but also extremely complex form. All things could be contained within it or, on the contrary, excluded from its borders.
An invitation to embrace the Multiverse theory, sipping a Menabrea!
* The color choice of black and white is dictated by the desire to remain faithful to the nature of the Ensō made for this label. In case of printing, it is required to be done on rice paper or a similar material.
