Decorated using the Maki-e technique, the Namiki Yukari fountain pen tribute mother nature this time showing turtles swimming. According to traditional Japanese beliefs, the tortoise is a haven for immortals and the world mountain, and symbolizes longevity, good luck, and support. This pen features Togidashi-Taka Maki-e technique, that on completion of back ground and other elements of the scene using Togidashi Maki-e techniques, greater emphasis is provided to the main design through the use of other materials such as lacquer and charcoal powder. The design is then finished using the same techniques as those used in Hira(flat) Maki-e. The result is an impression of stately opulence.
