 Product Description:

This pen is inspired by Ito Jakuchu's painting of Tora-zu. Ito Jakuchu was a renown painter in the mid-Edo period during a time when Japan was closed off to the outside world. His paintings involved a lot of experimentation and had a lot of influences from nature. Many of his works are found in museums worldwide. 

Tigers are seen as guardians in Japan against demons and evil spirits.
