Moctezuma I was crowned ruler of the great Aztec Empire in 1440, thereby ushering in the golden age of the Aztecs. During his reign, he shaped the image of the Aztec state that we are familiar with today – a state rich in culture and mythology. The capital city Tenochtitlán, today’s Mexico City, blossomed under his rule. The Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Moctezuma I Limited Edition 4810 with champagne-tone gold-coated fittings is dedicated to this supreme ruler of one of the most special cultures in world history. The overall design is inspired by an atlatl, an Aztec spear-throwing device. The shape of the cone, refined with a hammer finish, is based on an Aztec sacrificial knife with an obsidian blade. The lacquer colours - turquoise and carmine red - are inspired by the colours of the royal cloak. Lacquer inlays inspired by traditional signs and ornaments crown the cap. The handcrafted Au 750 solid gold nib is adorned with a fine engraving inspired of the Aztec glyph for the city of Tenochtitlán: a three-armed cactus with a royal diadem and two scrolls.
