AP Limited Editions celebrates the ancient Japanese tradition that reveres the Lion Dog figures that guard the entrance to temples and shrines. Komainu are seen in pairs and are believed to be of Buddhist origin.

Crafted in the highest levels of Maki-e Lacquer Art, this stunning fine writing instrument features a pair of Komainu Guardians beautifully created in the raised Taka Maki-e with inlay of intricate shimmering Blue Raden and very tiny pieces of Gold and Gold powder.
