The limited edition Blackwing Volumes 3 is a tribute to Indian musical genius and sitar maestro, Ravi Shankar on his 100th birthday. This set of 12 pencils features a matte turmeric finish, gold ferrule, and gold imprint, accented by a pattern inspired by one of Ravi's sitars. The pattern features a flower design with the sacred Sanskrit symbol and sound "Om," written as its generic Devanagari sign
ॐ. Used in Buddhism as well as Hinduism, the symbol and sound signifies and represents many different meanings across Dharmic traditions; to Ravi it encapsulated the deeply spiritual nature of his music and art.
This limited edition includes 12 pencils with extra firm graphite and comes in a vertical carrying box.
