The central theme of this masterpiece is a delightful Japanese landscape scene featuring a beautiful pine shore and ocean waves. With the hands of artist using the technique of Taka-Makie, a splendid scenery of pine shore is completely expressed. The sparkles of lacquer and the gold dust are completely covered the body and the pen cap, making this pen a jewel of writing that combines the features of a modern fountain pen and the preciousness of Japanese Maki-e art.
