Description

Our exquisite pen design features a detail from a Japanese painted handscroll (Kamakura period, 1185–1333) in the Museum's collection, which illustrates episodes taken from chapter 25, the "Universal Gate" chapter, of the Lotus Sutra. This popular text describes the manifold mercies of the compassionate bodhisattva Kannon, the most beloved bodhisattva in East Asia. Although the compositions and many motifs of this version reflect Chinese pictorial traditions, it is clear that the artist inventively incorporated native Japanese (yamato-e) elements.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from too heavy to carry in a purse... ...but It is pretty so I keep it on my kitchen counter with a pad to make my shopping list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen Purchased the Lotus pen a couple of weeks ago. Did not disappoint. Writes beautifully and well balanced. It is attractive and I received a compliment about it when using the pen in public.
