Moctezuma I was crowned ruler of the Great Aztec Empire in 1440, thus beginning the Golden Age of the Aztecs. During his reign, Moctezuma I defined the image of the Aztec Empire we know today: a state rich in culture and mythology. The capital Tenochtitlan, today's city of Mexico, flourished during his reign. Montblanc's Patron of Art Homage to Moctezuma I Limited Edition 4810 with champagne gold finish details is dedicated to this great ruler of one of the most outstanding civilizations in history. The overall design is inspired by an atlatl, an Aztec harpoon-throwing instrument. The shape of the cone, embellished with a very fine hammering, is inspired by an Aztec sacrificial knife with obsidian blade. The colors of the lacquer - oil and carmine red - are inspired by the colors of the royal cloak. The two hood decoration hieroglyphics symbolize the years of the reign of Moctezuma I. The hand-crafted Au 750 solid gold nib is adorned with a precious engraving inspired by aztec glyph for the city of Tenochtitlan: a three-armed cactus with a royal tiara and two ornamental coils.
