In China, the bat is considered a symbol of happiness as the pronunciation of the word "bat" resembles a Chinese word "福" which means "fortune", and five bats resembles the meaning of "五福临门(fortune is coming)." The depiction of the bat is considered to be a lucky pattern which brings five kinds of luck: a long life, wealth, health, respect and mindfulness, virtue and grace. There were times when only noble people could wear clothes using motifs of the bat. In Japan as well, the bat is regarded as a symbol of luck as the word bat is pronounced as "komori" which could be written in Japanese as a lot of happiness. For Five Lucky Bats, the labor intensive Togidashi-Taka-Maki-e(burnished and raised) technique was employed. This is a style that can give the artwork a three dimensional appearance. The five bats adorn the pen and are embellished with elements of raden (finely ground abalone embedded onto lacquer-coated surfaces) and kirikane (gold leaf cut into shapes). The pen will come with an 18 Carat two-toned gold nib in a factory standard medium nib. The cap features a crown cap top depicting the Pelikan logo along with the traditional beak clip and double cap bands. The remainder of the gold-plated furniture includes two trim rings at the piston knob and a single trim ring at the section. It is limited to 123 pieces worldwide with individually numbered and signed by the Maki-e artist.
