 Maki-e Dragon

The Dragon summons thunderclouds and storms, becomes a tornado, and rises into the sky and flies freely. It lurks in the abyss in autumn and rises to the heavens in spring. The ascending dragon heading towards the heavens and the descending dragon from the heavens are favored as auspicious patterns.

The auspicious flight of the Dragon.

In particular, since it is said the dragon ascends to the heavens and gets the treasure ball, the descending dragon is depicted holding the treasure ball. It is said that the treasure ball is a sacred jade that can cure diseases and make all kinds of wishes come true.

On the fountain pen the treasure ball was crafted with Raden technique, using small particles of abalone shell. The dragon is surrounded by the golden lights of the thunderstorm and in the background is the Mount Fuji shown where the thunderstorm began.
