This amazing expression of Maki-e is superbly crafted in the highest levels of Maki-e Lacquer Art, Shishiai-Togidashi Maki-e; and is a befitting tribute to the Moon Goddess, a special symbol of Oriental Cultural Heritage. A brilliant landscape shimmers with the purity of Gold and breathtakingly beautiful, tiniest of tiny pieces of inlaid multi-colored Abalone Shell and Mother of Pearl bring to life the beautiful figure of the Moon Goddess in her glittering heavenly abode flanked by white Rabbits, high above the clouds. The skill of the Maki-e Shi is to be saluted in the precision and miraculous application of Maki-e Art techniques to craft the variegated elements of this complex composition. Every turn of this fine writing instrument pushes the boundaries of Maki-e Art and extols the potential of the Maki-e Artist.
