ary - means sky, universe, immensity in the Nhandeva dialect of the Guarani language
com - from Communication
In the beginning there was Ary...
South American natives used this word to represent the sky, the firmament and even the divine. Ary was always a fundamental part of their lives, their day-to-day living experience, their prayers, and their contacts. To gaze at Ary on a clear night with the sky studded with stars always gave them room to dream.
Continuing this tradition, Ary is connected to Com, to continue linking man with the infinite, now with satellite technology, however without losing the feeling that caused that first Indian to look at the heavens and exclaim, “Ary”, thus celebrating his freedom.
