MONTBLANC HOMER WRITERS EDITION BALLPOINT PEN
* Required fields
MontblancHomer Writers Edition 2018
Homer is the name ascribed by the ancient Greeks to the legendary author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, two epic poems that are the central works of ancient Greek literature.
This new Montblanc Writers Edition takes its main inspiration from the story of the Trojan horse.
The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war.
In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside.
The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy.
That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, ending the war
The overall shapeof the pen is inspired by the horse, with the back and clip reflecting the spear.
The engraving on the cone and rings borrows motifs from traditional Greek black-figured pottery, with the overall color of the writing instrument taking inspiration from this same black Greek pottery.
