Just 20 years after the Temple of Zeus was finished in Olympia, the monument “The Statue of Zeus” was erected inside it. Pelikan was Inspired by "The Statue of Zeus" The sublime effect of the world wonder was not only attributable to its size but also to the many fine materials used in it. To express the esteem for this world wonder, the piston fountain pen “The Statue of Zeus” is also made from high quality materials with elaborate finishing techniques. Pelikan has used valuable 18 carat rose gold for the embellishments. Using painstaking artistic processing, the motif of Zeus has been worked into the barrel in 925 sterling silver, and finally all decorative elements have been plated with 18 carat gold in an electroplating bath. to create a gentle transition to the rose gold and emulate the ivory of the statue, Pelikan uses precious resin in a creamy white color for the grip section, filling handle section and lid. The decorative elements such as the trademark Pelikan beak clip and the decorative rings, as well as the pièce résistance – the 18 carat nib – are all plated with rose gold. With this new Limited Edition piece, Pelikan once again creates a superior piston fountain pen which renews a closeness and proximity to writing. Each one of the 300 writing instruments is a unique one-off produced in Germany.
