Maki-e is the art of Japanese Lacquer painting and is renowned for its beauty and artistry. The Pelikan “Snow, Moon and Flowers” Maki-e fountain pen uses Togidashi-Taka-Maki-e that combines both Taka-Maki-e and Togidashi-Maki-e techniques.
“Snow, Moon and Flowers“ refers to winter snow, autumn moon, and spring flowers, which are natural beauties in three of the four seasons of Japan, and also conveys the tenderness in the scenery. In addition, it has become a symbolic foundation that supports the aesthetic life of the Japanese people with a calm and peaceful state of mind. “Snow, Moon and Flowers” has been used in various poems and lyrics in praising the beautiful landscapes that strike people’s hearts.
On the fountain pen, snow crystals, full moon and cherry blossoms are painted on the background and sprinkled with gold powder. The motif fantastically expresses the beautiful four seasons of Japan in fascinating details.
