A brush is the traditional writing instrument for Chinese calligraphy. Along with paper, ink, and inkstone, the brush was part of the Four Treasures found in a scholar’s studio. The body of the brush is commonly made from bamboo or other materials such as wood, porcelain, or horn. The head of the brush is typically made from animal hair, such as goat, wolf, horse, weasel, rabbit, deer.

A scholar’s tools were symbols of his status and were generally made to the individual’s requirements. Brushes are considered an extension of the calligrapher’s arm, they served as a direct link to the artist’s creative spirit but it also requires a great deal of technique and discipline.

They were used by the Chinese literati, the scholarly and governmental elite of the society, and scholar-artists who were proficient scholars embellishing their paintings with poetry.
