Salmon of Knowledge - Thumb Drive

About this Product

 Item type: Thumb drive shell. Story: In celtic mythology, there was a well surrounded by the nine hazel trees of knowledge. Each tree dropped a nut into the well, which the salmon that lived in it, ate. By devouring these nuts, the salmon became the Salmon of Wisdom, of Knowledge.
             Legend had it that whomever first tasted of the salmon's flesh would gain all of his knowledge - all the knowledge of the world. The poet Finn spent seven years trying to catch the fish - and finally he did. He had his apprentice, Fionn, prepare the salmon for him to dine upon.
             However, while Fionn was cooking, a drip of fat leapt from the fire and landed upon his thumb - it burned, and he quickly tried to suck the fat off of his thumb. All of the salmon's knowledge was concentrated on that drop, and Fionn gained all the knowledge of the world. He went on to lead the Fianna, the heroes of celtic Mythology. 

------
This project was from a course in IDES322 at the University of the Arts. I felt a salmon of knowledge was appropriate for a thumb drive (thumb, ha!), where we store information at a fingertip.
