Wooden stand for a lyre – LUTHIEROS Atlas stand
“Atlas, son of Titan Iapetus and Oceanid Asia, has the sky on his shoulders.” — Apollodorus, 3
This is a versatile wooden stand customized for the needs of a LUTHIEROS lyre. It is named after Atlas, a Titan who was closely connected with the myths of the main two heroes of Greek mythology, Hercules and Perseus. A highly skilled mythological figure (renowned for his deep understanding of philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy), Atlas is usually depicted kneeling while supporting the whole earth on his shoulders.
Stand’s modular design enables it to transform based on the shape and dimensions of a given lyre so as to be able to support it with stability. It is made of durable wood with a natural finish, helping the actual center of interest (the lyre) to show in its grandiosity.
The LUTHIEROS Atlas stand is ideal for use with one of our ancient replica lyres, but it can also support a list of other luthiers’ lyres thanks to its modular design. Needless to say that no animal was harmed during the manufacturing process of our Atlas wooden stand.

"My ancient Kithara, handcrafted by Luthieros Music Instruments, is for me a very interesting challenge. As an instrument is both old and new. It carries a history of many centuries and at the same time_ it is a very modern challenge that requires a creative approach to musical archetypes. After many experiments […] I discover that this instrument has but many extensions and features that are not noticeable at first glance. The construction is both sturdy and thin, and made of quality woods, which are eclectic, stylish and durable." - Ross Daly, a professional world musician of Irish descent.
"Electric guitars are very often provided with vibrato, tremolo or whammy bars. That concept was in fact invented by the ancient Greeks twenty four hundred years ago. Kithara was a musical instrument very popular during the Golden Age of Ancient Greece. This is a reproduction that was made by the Greek master luthier Anastasios Koumartizis of Luthiers Music Instruments." - Peter Pringle, a professional Canadian musician, and well-known ancient instruments player.
