Black Water Dragon
The Black Water Dragon is the eighteenth in the David Oscarson™ series of Limited Edition Writing Instruments. Produced in two primary color variations, each will be limited to production of 88 pieces (including Fountain Pen and Roller Ball styles).
Dating back to 3000 BC, the Chinese Dragon is the ultimate symbol of good fortune. It is also a symbol for power, happiness, immortality, procreation, fertility and activity. While mythical in nature, the Dragon is revered as the most sacred of animals, possessing divine power to cause rain and thunder, to control floods and to rule over lakes, rivers and seas.
The Chinese proclaim themselves “Long De Chuan Ren” (Descendants of the Dragon) and throughout the ages the Dragon has been portrayed as the symbol of the Chinese people. Often depicted playing with a precious pearl, the Dragon can ward off wandering evil spirits, protect the innocent and bestow safety to all that hold his emblem.
In Chinese mythology, everything connected with the Dragon is blessed. The Dragon looks like a snake and has no wings, although it is believed that he can fly. Each of the Dragon’s four short legs has five toes. The Dragon is unpredictable and untouchable and his head and tail cannot be seen at the same time. Dragons live under the surface of the earth and only visit the world in the second month of the Chinese calendar.
The Black Water Dragon Pen incorporates multiple levels of Guilloché engraving and a combination of translucent and opaque Hard Enamel. The entire body of each pen is first cut down to the level of the background, leaving the ancient Chinese symbol for water in either a mid or high relief. Translucent and Opaque Hard Enamels are repeatedly kiln-fired and filed by hand, resulting in the beautiful and enduring finish of true Hard Enamel.
The Black Water Dragon Pen is available in Black Onyx and Ruby Red.
