Visconti

LA BIBBIA Limited Edition

Christian Bible and Jewish Bible, precious editions decored with scrimshow technique
Visconti La Bibbia

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.
Visconti has always been very attentive in giving importance with its creations to aspects and themes that have impact in our life: this Limited Edition fountain pen collection is dedicated to all religions of the world and the name chosen to describe it is (not by chance) MYSTIC PENS.

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.

La Bibbia DecoroThis 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.

Bible blind cap Holy Graal and Temple

Piston filled, with the exclusive Power Filler system, activated by a Holy Graal or a Temple, hidden inside the unscrewable blind cap.

CHRISTIAN BIBLE

Paintings divide the pen in Old Testament (the pen body) and New Testament (the cap).
In the shaft our artist has represented the story of the Old Testament according to its most significant scenes: Adam and Eve, Noah's Arch, David and Goliath, Abraham and Isaac, Moses and the Decalogue.
On the cap we find scenes of Jesus' life: His Birth, His Baptism, the Last Supper, and the Ascent to Heaven

BIBBIA EBRAICA

Also in the Jewish Bible's shaft, Visconti's artists have represented the same significant images of Old Testament: Adam and Eve, Noah's Arch, David and Goliath, Abraham and Isaac, Moses and the Decalogue.
The prayer in front of the Wailing Wall, a very important spiritual moment, is represented on the cap.
The Temple, so sacred to the Jewish people, is hidden inside the pen. You can find it by unscrewing the blind cap, and it has the function of activating the filling system.
