FACTS YOU DID NOT KNOW UNTIL NOW ABOUT THE
16” MOTHER TESLA GONG.
It’s a little known historical gem that the disk depicted in Myron’s statue, “Discobolus” from 5th century BC was in fact a 16” Mother Tesla Gong.
How exactly one of our gongs became part of the ancient Greek Pentathlon involves a complex synthesis of temporal physics and wishful thinking that our attorneys have advised us not to discuss as the patent is still pending.
What we can speak to however is the indisputable fact that Ancient Greece was not only a time of great advances in art, mathematics, philosophy and astronomy, but also track and field events that indulged the senses.
Wrestlers chose their holds by what would be most pleasing to the eye, javelins were scented, their points dipped in Jasmine and Lilac, and shot puts made of ground lamb and herbs were often nibbled pre-toss as they were held aloft on shoulders.
And as for the discus throw, greater emphasis was placed on the sound produced upon impact than distance as evidenced by the gold medal awarded to Leonidas of Rhodes whose best effort travelled only 3 meters but produced a richly satisfying tone that could be heard all the way to Sparta.
Leonidas never took that medal off from around his neck for the remainder of his days. Or, for that matter the 16” Mother Tesla. As a result, he spent the last years of his life walking with something of a pronounced hunch, and at night literally had to rest on his laurels. But in serenity. And proudly.
The 16” Mother Tesla. It’s history in the re-making.
Let one transport you to a time and place of your own choosing. Or simply display it as the world’s largest Olympic commemorative coin.
