Read more about this product


This pen design features a detail from a Japanese painted handscroll (Kamakura period 11851333) in the Museums collection which illustrates episodes taken from chapter 25 the Universal Gate chapter of the Lotus Sutra. This popular text describes the manifold mercies of the compassionate bodhisattva Kannon the most beloved bodhisattva in East Asia. Although the compositions and many motifs of this version reflect Chinese pictorial traditions it is clear that the artist inventively incorporated native Japanese (yamato-e) elements. Ball Pen twists to open and close and takes a standard ballpoint refill.

The highlight of the pen is the smooth twist-action ballpoint system activated by turning the tip cone. The Metropolitan Museum of Art logo appears on the cap top. Handsomely packaged in a color coordinated paperboard gift box. Proceeds from the sale of this product are used to support The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
