This beautiful masterpiece is based on a folktale of a couple who loved each other but due to their circumstances, they could not be together in life. When they died, they were reborn as butterflies to be together forever.
In Japan, butterflies are a symbol of marriage and longevity.
This pen features a intricate artwork depicting butterflies and their decorative wings. The pen clip is painted with nashiji-nuri-style which is inspired by the skin texture of the Japanese Asian pear.
