Lotus Ball Pen by Metropolitan Museum of Art®
This 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.
Ball pen twists to open and close and takes a standard ballpoint refill.
