Along with paper, ink, and inkstone, the brush was part of the Four Treasures found in a scholar’s studio. Arguably the most important tool, the brush served as a direct link to the artist’s creative spirit. Fashioned from ivory, the slim handle of this brush sat well in the hand, finely etched with auspicious symbols. A lush hank of horsehair bristles held copious amounts of ink to create graceful brushstrokes.
