Description:

JUROJIN - God of wealth and longevity - known as the "Old Man of the South Pole" is a Chinese Taoist god. He is considered to be the incarnation of the southern polar star, he is regarded to be the god of wealth and longevity. The body of the pen shows a smiling Jurojin who holds a cane on which a roll is pinned that has the lifespan of all things written on it. He is wearing a kimono printed with peaches. Similar to the peaches, the cap shows another symbol of longevity, a deer, to accompany him as a messenger. Created by artist Seiki.

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.
