Sailor Kaga Maki-e Longtailed Bird (Onagadori) Fountain Pen

Onagadori – Long tail Bird
The Onaga-dori was worshiped as Hou-ou (the Phoenix), which has come to represent spiritual concept for ‘Peace’ in ancient China, and it was introduced into Japan in the Heian period with some changes. During the Heian period, the Onaga- Dori was regarded as a ‘reality’ creature and its design was used extensively on the cloth of Japanese Kimono in the aristocratic society.
The design is hand decorated in traditional Japanese MAKI-E techniques by famous MAKI-E artist Mr. Isshu Tamura.

Maki-e is an ancient Japanese art that combines intricate lacquer painting with a variety of surface decorations. These traditionally include powered gold, precious metals, gemstones, mother of pearl or abalone shell. This 1200-year-old art form was created to embody the harmony of man with nature.
