Pelikan is pleased to combine the precision of the German craftsmanship with the ancient Chinese legend and, by modifying M1000, presents proudly to worldwide pen lovers the golden limited edition “Myth of the Moon Goddess”. The motif “Chang Eh Flying to the Moon” is masterly engraved on a sleeve of solid 925 silver with 24-carat gold overlay. The nib is 18-carat gold, accentuated with rhodium decor. The edition is limited to 568 pieces worldwide, a lucky number whose Chinese pronunciation implies flourishing of fortune in every field of life.

According to “Li-Ji”, an ancient Chinese book recording customs and ceremonies, the Chinese Emperor is to offer sacrifices to the sun in spring and the moon in autumn. While the sun is worshipped during the day, the rite for the moon is to be held in the evening. Chinese ancestors set the 15th day of the 8th lunar month as the day of the lunar rite, a day when half of autumn has passed and thus called “Mid-Autumn”. The night on August 15 of the lunar calendar is also called “Night of the Moon”, as the moon is brighter than usual. In Song Dynasty (starting from 420 A.D.), the day was officially declared for lunar worship and moon watching and named Mid-Autumn Festival. Moon cakes are regarded an indispensable delicacy on the occasion and are offered between friends to imply reunion. Family gathering, moon admiring, moon cake eating, out-door barbecue, etc. remain popular festival activities ever since.

Today, family reunion and celebration is a rule for all Chinese on this day that has become one of the three most important Chinese festivals.
