 Hand-painted by highly-trained Japanese Artisans

This pen contains artistry of Japanese dragons. They are well respected mythical creatures in Japan and are seen as water deities that control rainfall and all water bodies and has power over harvest, thus, symbolizing wealth and prosperity. It is believe that Japanese dragons are more closely tied to water as Japan is on an island that is surrounded by water. Japanese dragons in particular are typically portrayed with serpent-like bodies and no wings (unlike dragons portrayed in other cultures).

One of the dragons is holding a pearl (this type of imagery is commonly found in other depictions of the Japanese dragon). It is believed by some that this divine pearl represents the union of heaven and earth and the dragon wielding this pearl is a representation of its attempt to maintain balance and protection over heaven and earth.
