Description:

BISHAMONTEN - God of financial luck - The Samurais originally considered Bishamonten to be a god of war. Today, those who need luck in competitions that are determined by chance, turn to him for a favorable outcome. Bishamonten is depicted on the body of the pen wearing his armour as he is trampling a maleficent demon. He holds a spear in his right hand and a miniature stupa (a sacred building that contains relics, often used as a place of meditation) in his left hand. The cap of the pen is adorned with the wheel of dharma, an auspicious symbol from Buddhist teachings. Created by artist Masaru.

Seven artisans from the present Kokkokai group contributed to the creation of seven Yukari-type fountain pens. They are all equipped with a clip and feature an 18-karat gold nib that brings out the special engraving of the PILOT centenary editions. Each model is made in Taka Maki-e and shows one of The Seven Gods of Fortune. In Japanese mythology, they are believed to grant good luck and are among the most popular mythical characters in Japan. These seven deities consist of one woman and six men, each from a different religion (Shintoism, Buddhism, Taoism and Brahmanism) and from various geographical origins (Japan, China or India). Each pen is limited to 25 pieces in Europe, available as of March 2019.
