The set is designed to portray the life of Christ. The 1st pen is birth of Jesus on the cap, and the visit from the 3 wise men (pagan kings) on the barrel. The 2nd pen shows the baptism on the cap and the Sermon on the Mount on the barrel. What’s interesting about this pen is that the Sermon on the Mount was actually only attended by the 12 disciples, and if you count the number of people depicted on the pen, there are 12. The 3rd pen shows the trial on the barrel and the crucifixion on the cap. The 4th pen depicts the resurrection on the barrel, from the view from inside the empty tomb and ascension on the cap. You will also notice the first 2 pens are done with a black background and the last 2 in a light blue background. Christ entered a dark world and left it in light.
The pen was hand made in accordance with the highest standards of quality, using best hand cut ebonite. It has seven layers of lacquer based on linseed oil and was hand polished.
