 100% Genuine Urushi

 Hand-painted by highly-trained Japanese Artisans

The artwork on this pen takes its inspiration from legendary ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige. He is considered the last great master of ukiyo-e, and his 19th century prints continue to inspire artists the world over. The influence of his piece, Hodogaya: Shinmachi Bridge, can be seen clearly in this pen. Look closely and you will find Zen priests and palanquin bearers crossing the bridge, and boats floating in the river. This beautiful pen is worthy of a place in any art lover’s collection.
