Namiki Catfish and Gourd

This Namiki Yukari Royale Catfish and Gourd illustrates the zen koan paradox: "Catch a catfish with a gourd", the kind of impossibility that focuses the mind. Playfully executed in urushi lacquer over hard rubber, the craftsman employed multiple techniques to render a pond scene complete with lilly pads. 

This pre-owned  fountain pen is in near-mint condition.
