Statue of the most powerful

Just 20 years after the Temple of Zeus was finished in Olympia, the monument “The Statue of Zeus” was erected inside it. The Greek sculptor Phidias created the 13-meterhigh colossal statue between 438 and 430 BC. It was his last work and secured him high esteem as one of the most significant sculptors of ancient times. The statue of the most powerful Olympic god of Greek mythology, which is some seven times larger than human size, went on to impress visitors for centuries. According to legend, the Zeus statue was transported to Constantinople – today Istanbul – where it fell victim to a fire in the year 475. The work of art survived for around 905 years. Its remains of its base can still be seen in Olympia today.

Gleaming elegance

The sublime effect of the world wonder was not only attributable to its size but also to the many fine materials used in it. The skin of the enthroned statue of the god was made from pure ivory. The ankle-length robe, the soles of the sandals and the tresses of hair were shaped out of gold in perfect craftsmanship, and colored glass and precious stones adorned the monument. The whole composition of valuable materials gave Phidias’ Zeus statue a magnificent gleam. 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.

Artistic skill rich in tradition

Inspired by ancient architecture, the Limited Edition piston fountain pen has been made with care and extreme attention to detail. 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 finish, the motif and decorative elements had a clear varnish applied in order fo the background to be colored with anthracite tones.

Honoring unique architecture

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 de 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. Thanks to their first-class craftsmanship and exclusive look and feel, they pay an exceptional tribute to this world wonder.
