Maki-e technique and incredible details for the great wave on the pen Maki-E Seaside

Limited Edition
88 fountain pens

A fantastic Maki-e work of the artist Shozo Nakamura, who took inspiration from the painting "The great wave of Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai, who was one of the most famous Japanese painters in the Edo Era (particularly well-known for his series called "the thirty-six sceneries of Mount Fuji").

Due to the skilful use of tiny pieces of mother-of-pearl and egg shell, the painting on this impressive Pelikan M1000 fountain pen seems to come alive.

Maki E Seaside

Maki-E Seaside chiusa

The glittering water of the curling wave on the barrel, gold and silver on a dark background, pointed by squirts of sea foam; the Japanese traditional kites (also taken from the Edo Era) flying on the cap, among plover birds that swoop over the waves; the Mount Fuji, top covered by snow; all scenes have amazingly perfect details.
