The depiction of a waterfall in a mountain gorge is a common theme in Japanese art - the motif suggests the transient, ever-changing impermanence of the flowing water in contrast to the solid changelessness of the rocky mountain surface. The motif is realized here in painstaking Taka Maki-e technique with ample use of gold dust and other precious materials. 

This is a cartridge-converter pen which can use any bottled fountain pen ink when fitted with the provided converter. It can also use convenient Platinum brand disposable ink cartridges. We are an authorized Platinum dealer.
