an Aarikka Ram: the perfect gift for the Aries in your life
The symbol for Aries is the Ram. We have the perfect gift for that strong Aries in your life.
One of the classic designs from Finnish company Aarikka is the wooden Ram, also called Pässi. The company, Aarikka is known for their special use of bright colors in signature wooden products, a technique used since their start in the 1950's. The Aarikka ram was first created in 1973 by Aarikka founder, Kaija Aarikka.
She was inspired by a love of animals and the shape of round, pine beads.
The rams are still made entirely of wood and it takes about ten people to make each one, as each part is turned by a different lathe operator. The rams have become a symbol of strength and perseverance in Finland, appearing in many a Finnish household as a decorative item. They are often given as gifts.
