Omas Tauromaquia O09A0072 Limited Edition Fountain Pen
It is not easy to recreate this drama and the emotions of participants and spectators using a pen, yet when held between the fingers, it soon becomes apparent that the small but precise images take nothing away from the tension engulfing the scene.
Man and beast scrutinize each other as the final moment draws near, the moment when victory is achieved or defeat suffered.
The figure of the bullfighter is elegant, the position perfect. The clothing is adorned with the symbols of luck and courage worn by valiant performers.
The face is hidden but the concentration and determination are easy to imagine.
The use of enamel and precious metal on this superb fountain pen dedicated to a sophisticated yet primeval struggle evoke the dominant colors of the bullfight: the red, purple and bright yellow cape, the powerful black bull and the orange color of the sand and sun.
The pen is fitted with an 18 carat gold nib engraved with flowers to symbolize harmony and light.
The top of the cap is made from natural horn and has been left deliberately simple, austere even, to symbolize the arena with its external arcade, internal terracing and the central part of the space used for the fight itself.
A range of meanings, bright colors and talents for a limited edition fountain pen designed not just used for writing but as a work of art to be showcased.
Limited and Numbered Edition in silver and enamel: 500 Fountain pens.
Piston filling, 1.20ml, dedicated 18kt white gold nib
