Year of the Dragon
Year of the Dragon captures the majestic beauty and elegance of Chinese traditions while showcasing the artisanal skill and creativity of the Visconti craftsmen, who have meticulously crafted every detail.
“The dragon teaches you that if you want to climb high you have to do it against the wind.”
CHINESE NEW YEAR
Chinese New Year 2024 is the Year of the Wood Dragon, which begins on February 10 and ends on January 28, 2025. The dragon is a symbol of strength, courage, creativity and innovation in Chinese culture, and the wood element adds flexibility, adaptability and growth to its energy. 2024 is expected to be a year of potential and opportunity for those who are willing to embrace change and challenge themselves.
THE DRAGON: A SYMBOL OF EASTERN CULTURE
Silhouetted against a red background, a traditionally auspicious color, the Dragon figure on the pen’s body is further accentuated by the adept use of colored enameling and by a finely etched dragon-scale texture visible under a layer of semi-transparent enamel. To emphasize its auspicious power and nobility, Visconti designers decided to further enrich the look of the Imperial Dragon by setting a precious red ruby into its eye.
Even the box that holds the pen is a little gem of design inspired by Far Eastern culture, reminiscent of the octagonal structures of Chinese pagodas. The cover of the box features an elaborate engraving on a gold background depicting the Imperial Dragon to which the entire collection is dedicated. A rectangular window allows a view of this spectacular pen.
