    gli AinuAinu

    Ainu means "human", and it's the name of people descendants of Mongoloid migrants who entered the Japanese islands approx 25,000-30,000 years ago and lived in Hokkaido.
    Having no written language, the Ainu orally transmit tales, legends and moral rules from generation to generation. The songs are melodies consisting of only two or three different notes and in many cases imitate animal cries or birdsong.
    In 1997, a new law provided funds for the research and promotion of Ainu culture such as language, traditional dancing and various ceremonies.

    The Ainu pen - Indigenous People

    Delta's Ainu pens (of Indigenous People series) were made in 2005 with a deep marbled blue resin, interweaved with rings in resin of various other colors.

    NOSAfter the recent reopening, Delta found a number of Ainu which it reassembled and overhauled, equipping them with a new nib.

    Both the nib and the cap top are decorated with the same design that represents a medal used in women's necklace, called "tamasay".

    The clip offers a three-dimensional representation of the "nipopo"(wooden doll)

    The central ring of the cap is enriched by a dark sterling silver decoration, relief-etched.
