Blacking Vol.3 The Ravi Shankar Pencil

Written by Catherine on Friday 3 July 2020 in Writing instruments

The Blackwing Vol.3 is a tribute to Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. It features our extra-firm graphite and a matte turmeric finish accented with a pattern inspired by one of Ravi's iconic sitars. The pattern prominently features the Om a sacred Sanskrit symbol with three phonetic components that correlate to the waking, dream, and unconscious states of being.

In June of 1966, George Harrison met maestro Ravi Shankar in Bath, England. Harrison asked Ravi to teach him how to play the sitar; a task Ravi agreed to only after considerable hesitation. Their collaboration resulted in the explosive popularity of classical Indian music and culture in the United States and around the world.
