Custom Pens - KLETEGD132FP - "Tinia" Etruscan God

About our Pens

Custom pens use a pre-made nib (or nib unit) and everything else is handcrafted. Creating our bespoke pens involves -mainly- the use of a metal and a wood lathe to shape the parts of the writing instruments: Grip section, Body, and Cap. To make these parts we choose materials such as wood, ebonite, metals and acrylics.

 

About this piece:

This pen is inspired by the Etruscan civilization and owes its name to Tinia (also known as Tin, Tinh, Tins or Tina), the God of the sky and the supreme deity of the Etruscan Pantheon.

The upper part of the cap represents a Villanovan crested helmet from the 9th century BC. (The Villanovan culture, regarded as the earliest phase of the Etruscan civilization, was the earliest Iron Age culture of Central and Northern Italy).

The Etruscan civilization of ancient Italy covered a territory, at its greatest extent, of roughly what is now Tuscany and lasted from the 8th century BCE to the 3rd and 2nd centuries BCE.

Etruscan influence on ancient Roman culture was profound and it was from the Etruscans that the Romans inherited many of their own cultural and artistic traditions.
