The High Artistry A Tribute to the Great Wall Limited Edition 333 is paying homage to the symbolic meaning of the Great Wall. It is said that the Great Wall twists and turns across China like a gigantic dragon, protecting the country just as an emperor would protect his empire. Symbolic of the way the wall winds protectively around China, the Au 750 solid yellow gold skeleton overlay coils dragon-like around the Meisterstück 149 fountain pen, decorated with nine dragon motifs, a good number in Chinese culture and strongly associated with the Chinese dragon, a symbol of magic and power. The High Artistry Meisterstück Skeleton with a limitation number of 333 pieces, the edition incorporates the symbolic colours red and yellow in a multilayer effect created by a deep-red translucent lacquer underlay beneath an Au 750 solid gold skeleton overlay. Red represents fire, as well as happiness, beauty, vitality, good luck, success and good fortune. Yellow symbolises royalty and is traditionally reserved for the emperor. The handcrafted Au 750 solid yellow gold nib bears an engraving of a tower inspired by the famous signal towers of the Great Wall, while the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl crowns the cap top of the edition.
