With China booming, Parker taking the opportunity to release a Zodiac Series last Christmas to welcome the lunar year.
Maybe after a few more days, we will like it better.
While we may not like the drawing of the tiger on the barrel, the pine tree maki-e is not that bad.
This pen is crafted by the same maki-e artisan as the previous year.
We take a few more shoots of the pen, and at different angle and layout... try to image what was the artisan thinking when he drew the tiger.
I think the same tiger in the picture below look nicer.
