Namiki Nippon Art Fountain Pen - Chinese Phoenix
This gorgeous Nippon Art Series fountain pen pays homage to the special bird, known to the Chinese as Feng Huang. The phoenix symbolizes virtue, grace and prosperity, as well as the union of opposites, yin and yang, both male and female. Unlike the western phoenix, the Chinese phoenix is not reborn from its ashes. It represents the light of the sun and the moon, and is the bird of the southern sky. Its song is said to have been the basis of the five cardinal notes of Chinese melody and one of the four creatures that created the world (the other three being the dragon, the unicorn, and the tortoise).
The artist's kanji signature can be seen on the pen as an additional design feature. The Namiki Nippon Art Chinese Phoenix fountain pen fills with the included larger capacity Con-70 converter, or Pilot/Namiki cartridges can be used as well. The Namiki #10 solid gold 14k nib is inscribed with the silhouette of Mt. Fuji as well as the Namiki pentagon logo. The Namiki Nippon Art Chinese Phoenix fountain pen arrives in a traditional softwood gift box.
