  • Gengei Hochu [no.13015]
    Price: US$3,800

    Price: US$3,800
    Background of " Gengei houchu "A sumi artist of the Ming Dynasty in China named Teikunbo was famous for his style of sumi art called Teishibokuen. Recently Nakaya has teamed up with a skilled artist from Wajima to once again create this "koboku" or ancient sumi atmosphere on a fountain pen. The artist paints several layers of sumi (Chinese black carbon ink) in order to create a raised image on the surface of the pen. Once upon a time, a villager in ancient China beheld a huge whale swimming near the coast, and was inspired to create an image of a deity - a creature with the head of a dragon and the body of a whale. The Wajima artist has recreated this ancient deity, in vibrant forms, which almost seem to swim before your eyes. There is a well-known "Natsume" (powdered tea container for Japanese tea ceremonies), which has been decorated with the same method used to produce this pen. N

  • Rashomon [no.13018]
    Price: US$5,000

    Price: US$5,000
    Background of "Rashomon" In Japanese, "Mon" means gate, so "Rasho-mon" means "gate Rasho(mon)" .During the Heian era (794-1191) in Kyoto, a demon kidnapped the daughters of aristcrats very often. Underthe instruction from the emperor, Yorimitsu Minamoto accompanied with four strongest soldiers called "Shi-tennoh" and root out the demon near by Rashomon. During the fight with the demon, Tsuna Watanabe (953-1025), one of the "Shi-tennoh" solidiers chopped off the demon's right hand and kept it at his kura(warehouse). Later, the demon disguising as Tsuna Watanabe's mother, took the arm back from the warehouse. Consequently a fierce battle between Tsuna Watanabe and the demon again took place at Mount Oi. We NAKAYA tried to express this legend in the fountain pen through the "Sumiko-age" method (heaping up by charcoal powered finish) which is succeeded from only one craftsman, generation to generation. The facial expressions of arm chopping at Rashomon, some detail parts of Thina's armor, all have been expressed very artistically through the non-lustrous black charcoal in convex and concave base, taking time of more than half of a year.

    Kakiwari Maki-e for a motif on Sumiko finished surface. This wonderful artwork is a corroboration by two authorities of each area. This time, we introduce seven pieces of high resolution close-up photographs, please check its details. A motif this time is called N''Karasu Tengu''. (In Japanese)If we dare to say in English,, N''a crow wings - long nosed genie''. In Japanese, Karasu means a crow, Tengu mens N''long nosed genie''.In my opinion, Tengu used to be a foreign person who came to Japan by some accident in old times.Karasu Tengu moves widely because it has a beak and also has wings like a bird,Karasu Tengu gets off even in the town, and it ruined.Karasu Tengu has supernatural power and good at sword (Katana) so that it taught Ushiwakamaru (A famous historical person.) about how to use Katana when Ushiwakamaru stayed in Kurama (Kyoto city) in his child food.
