Within the open crescent curve of the horn is the cradle of heroic strength. Symbolic of power in many cultures, the horn possesses the eternal spirit arising from acts of bravery and loyalty. The horn's crescent reaches beyond its bounds, continually overflowing with protective magic, without emptiness.
Inspired by his reverence of nature, and informed by his formal studies in art and science, San Francisco artist Agelio Batle has created this innovative sculptural writing implement. Natural graphite and smudge resistant compounds are fused in specialized forms under intense pressure. Handcrafted, using new and old world techniques, each piece is meticulously fashioned using the innovative methods that Batle created. A functional graphite pencil that will not stain your hands.
Measures 1.5 (at horn) x 6 x 0.75 inches (height, length, width)
Care: Polish with a clean, dry, soft cloth. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat. Keep out of reach of children. Do not drop as they could crack or break.
This pencil comes packaged inside of a ready to give gift box.
