Under the aegis of the Gods
In Greek mythology, the aegis (l’égide in French) is a magical shield carried by the Gods, in particular by Zeus and Athena.
As well as being an exceptional means of protection designed to ensure the carrier’s safety, the aegis is also a work of art in its own right. Homer describes it as being “precious, inalterable and immortal”.(αἰγίδ᾽ ἐρίτιμον ἀγήρων ἀθανάτην τε).
To a certain extent, the aegis draws its power from the material covering it, the skin of a sacred goat named Amalthea.
Taking inspiration from Athena, the goddess of war, wisdom, arts and crafts, EGIDE identifies itself with these functional and aesthetic origins, based on the value of the material used.
