The mind is probably the most puzzzling feature of human nature. What is our conscience? How does it work? Are the mind, the brain and the soul, the same thing? All these questions have spurred scientific research about the human brain, as we can see with the recent program President Obama has launched. Ever since neurons were discovered by Spanish anatomist Santiago Ramon y Cajal, new results and discoveries about the human brain have flooded the scientific community. Nevertheless, many things are still yet to be learned. Montegrappa pens created a limited edition of fountain pens dedicated to the human brain in 2012.
The Montegrappa Brain Fountain Pen present a complex design finished in high quality resin and solid sterling silver or solid gold. Everything in this fountain pen is reminiscent of scientific research. The barrel has the form of a microscope, the instrument needed to study brain tissue, the cap is engraved in a complex representation of interconnecting neurons, and the clip has the form of a spinal cord, a crucial piece of the nervous system. This limited edition fountain pen comes with a solid 18K gold two-color nib with a silhouette of a sea-horse. This animal is related to the hippocampus, a part of the brain responsible of our memory.
Montegrappa pens is proud to include this beautiful fountain pen in their collection of limited editions. Only 1012 units have been made of the sterling silver version. This number was chosen because latest estimates say the number of neurons in the brain is aprox. 10 to the 12th power! On the top of the pen you can see a finely engraved cross-section of the human brain, and the central ring bears Montegrappa’s signature. This pen is now available for you to enjoy and admire.
