Delta Limited Edition Maya Silver Fountain Pen
The Delta Maya Limited Edition Silver Fountain Pen honors the Mayan Civilization, and is the 8th edition of Delta’s Indigenous People series. The Mayan civilization began around 2,000 B.C. in the Yucatan Peninsula and Central America and is regarded as one of the most sophisticated ancient cultures.
The Delta Maya Silver Fountain Pen is hand-turned from bars of blue and red resin – colors commonly used by Mayan Warriors as body paint. The solid silver accent band is decorated with motifs from Mayan pottery. The fountain pen clip represents a clay flute called Chililihtli. On the crown is a depiction of the Mayan calendar. The 18K gold nib is custom engraved with an ancient mask showing the three phases of Mayan life. The Maya Limited Edition Silver Fountain Pen uses cartridges or converter.
The Delta Maya is also available in matching silver rollerball/ball pen and a special edition vermeil fountain pen and Non-Stop rollerball. Each Maya pen is limited to 800 pieces worldwide.

Regarded as one of the most sophisticated of ancient cultures, the Mayans built magnificent cities and were advanced in astronomy, math and languages. Mayan hieroglyphic writing is a constant source of wonder to scholars, as is the advanced calendar system they developed to keep track of days and foresee the future. The Maya famously predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012 A.D. Although conquered by the Spanish by the 1600's, Mayan culture still exists in languages spoken by some six million people.
