In the third millennium, religion has dramatically become more and more significant not only from the spiritual, but also and unfortunately from the conflict fostering point of view, and in our political perception too.
The Bible, the most read and printed book of the world, will give the start to this collection with two editions that reflect the two great religions linked to it: The Christianism and the Judaism.
This pen is turned into single resin ivory-coloured bars, and the cap has the same dimensions of the pen shaft.
The Christian edition is more Renaissance- related according to its painted designs, while the Jewish edition has a more ancient look, in a way more solemn, in one word, more orthodox.
Entirely made in Florence and inspired by Dürer's xylographies, the painting technique is a "scrimshaw" for the Jewish version and a "painted scrimshaw" for the Christian version, which has never been performed before on a pen and it's very rare on other objects, being a very difficult technique.
According to this technique, resin is drypoint engraved, and then filled in with calcography ink, and finally coloured, thanks to the fine artwork of Claudio Mazzi.
The head and blind cap, with their 10 lateral facets, remind us of the Decalogue- their form and the engraving in Hebrew on the blind cap recall the two stone tablets.
Piston filled, with the exclusive Power Filler system, activated by a Holy Graal or a Temple, hidden inside the unscrewable blind cap.
Both models feaure the two-tone 18 Kt gold nib, available as EEF, EF, F, M, B, St., and an ivory-colored feeder.
