Following on from a range of artistic themes paying tribute to the great universal values, the designers of the Maison Caran d’Ache have developed the exceptional limited-edition Spirit of Wildlife writing instruments. They exalt the art of solid silver sculpting through interpretations of the enchanted forest theme.
Wonderful and secret, protectors of life and havens of peace, forests have remained loyal allies across thousands of years of human development. The Spirit of Wildlife writing instruments symbolically recreate the fabulous universe of the forest, in tribute to this infinitely pure aspect of nature.
THE ART OF FIGURATIVE SCULPTURE
The sculpted silver structure is superimposed on the matt black lacquered body of the writing instruments, thereby recreating the vitality and the mystery of the forest through this play on volumes. A majestic stag and a doe encircle the body of the pen, evoking the union of a couple and the rebirth of life. The cap stages a scene featuring a stag with magnificent antlers, a pheasant and a wild boar, alongside a wood anemone. Depictions of oak leaves and acorns adorn all the scenes, right the way through to the figurative clip.
The tip of the cap is set with a natural peridot, an exquisite gemstone that appears only in the green tones of plant life. The peridot symbolises harmony, love and wisdom.
The Spirit of Wildlife limited edition is crafted in numbered editions of 101 fountain pens and 101 roller pens, in tribute to the longevity of the Maison Caran d’Ache.
