The brush was one of the Four Treasures of a scholar's studio, along with paper, ink, and an inkstone—and a scholar chose this humble form calligraphy brush with care after appreciating its form, the way it felt in his hand, and the way the brush stroked the paper. Its handle is hand-carved from a single piece of wood into a subtle and elegant hourglass shape.
