Latin Quotes

Are you looking for an original gift to express various forms of love - from platonic affection to romantic longing? Then here is a gold ducat of the Czech Mint "Omnia vincit amor" from the free cycle entitled Latin Quotes.

Love
has many forms, and while the Czech language is satisfied with one word, the ancient Greeks had seven of them. Eros represents passionate and uncontrollable love. Ludus is light-hearted playful love - flirting. Pragma means mature love that lasts for ages. Philia signifies platonic friendly love - mutual admiration and respect. Storge expresses caring maternal love. Agape represents sacrificial love for all fellow human beings. Philautia symbolizes self-love - self-respect and self-knowledge. The Romans, who adopted much of Greek culture as their own, also knew about self-love. The poet Publius Vergilius Maro, who lived and worked in the 1st century BC, wrote "Omnia vincit amor" - "Love conquers all" in his Bucolica. These words are spoken on his deathbed by a man named Gallus, who is so mad with unhappy love that even the gods themselves cannot help him...

Medal maker
MgA. Petra Čánská has dedicated both sides of the ducat to the heart - a universal symbol of love that can be understood across time and space. On the obverse side it is supplemented with the versatile Czech text LÁSKA NAD VŠÍM VÍTĚZÍ and on the reverse side by the Latin quote OMNIA VINCIT AMOR.

The ducat is placed in a
gift box. It includes an appendix which explains the origin of the Latin quotation in words and pictures.
