Description
It is believed the great Mexican cultures were so advanced that they created indigenous writing systems before the Europeans. This, in part, has inspired Montegrappa to honour the civilizations of Mexico, of which the five greatest were the Olmec, the Maya, the Teotihuacan, the Toltec and the Aztec. This year, however, has drawn the world’s attention to one in particular, thanks to its advanced knowledge of solar and lunar behavior. The Mayan calendar consists of several cycles, with different lengths. One cycle is a 260 day form commonly known to scholars as the Tzolkin. It worked in combination with a 365-day system, similar to the modern usage of our solar year. Known as the Haab year, it forms a cycle lasting for 52 Haabs; this is also called the Calendar Round. Smaller cycles of 13 days and 20 days were, respectively, important components of the of the Tzolkin and Haab cycles. Montegrappa’s dedication to Mexico’s illustrous Past is the introduction of the “Mayan Calendar”, limited edition collection. The pen was crafted by Northern Italy’s finest craftsman. Decorating every surface of the pens are the engraved images of Mexican gods, with patterns reminiscent of distinctive Mayan architecture.
