The RIGARDS RG0074 was inspired by the hypnotic sight of a majestic Manta Ray gliding silently through the waves and light. Forming the defining feature of the frames are the dynamic lines and indelible bridge detail–an embodiment of the graceful curvature and head fins (“devils’ horns”) of the phantasmic creature. The distinctive bridge design also resembles a half-closed but ever-watchful extra eye, an inspired nod to mythical Eastern Gods like Erlang Shen and Fudo Myo-o, known for their truth-seeing third eye in the middle of the forehead. The choice of handpicked solid horn, with a translucent milkiness evocative of rare striated jade, sublimates the frame with a material ambiguity. The refreshing sculptural style is wholly organic and devoid of the sterile machine-finished look characteristic of typical horn frames in the market. Every line in the design is considered, every daring shaved plane has a reason. The hand-polishing is restrained rather than overdone, hitting just the right notes. Nothing is arbitrary. Flexible beta-titanium temples offer ease of adjustment and a snug fit.
