Talsam: The Original Digital Love Talisman
The name “Talsam” is a play on the word “Talisman,” an object that is designed to protect its wearer from harm or bring them fortune.
Talismans have been around for thousands of years, used in various forms across civilizations. From the evil eye to the four-leaf clover, talismans are an ever-present part of our modern day lives.
The Lyra Constellation: Ancient Greece
The Lyra Constellation is a group of six stars in the northern sky. It contains Vega, the fifth brightest star in the sky and the first star to be photographed after the Sun.
In Ancient Greek mythology, Lyra represents the lyre of Orpheus, who was considered to be the greatest musician of his time. Legend has it that Zeus placed Orpheus’ lyre in the sky after he died.

In Chinese and Japanese mythology, Lyra is associated with a love story between a goddess, represented by Vega, and a mortal, represented by a star named Altair.
Separated in the night sky by the Milky Way, the two lovers are allowed to meet once a year, when a celestial bridge of magpies connects the two stars.
