Embodying the Taoist concept of the fire element, the Red Bird can also represent the direction South and the season of summer. The Nakaya Long Cigar Red Bird Shinshin Suzaku is realized using the tame-sukashi technique.

In Tame-Sukashi technique, layers of clear, smooth Urushi lacquer are applied over a painted motif - it is similar to Tame-Nuri technique, in which lacquer is applied over a solid color. The underlying motif in Tame-Sukashi will become more promiment over time as the Urushi lacquer ages and becomes more transparent.
See also the Ascending Dragon fountain pen, a companion pen to this one. We love the way the motif also emerges from the lacquer body in time.
