Xuan Writing and Drawing Brush
2009-10-19 15:46 anhuinews

With a history of more than 2,000 years, the Xuan writing and drawing brush was produced in Jingxian County. It was once selected as an article of tribute, and even as the imperial writing brush. The material for making Xuan writing and drawing brushes is carefully selected. The materials most frequently used are rabbit hair, goat hair, and wolf hair. These materials are processed very strictly and delicately. The brush is considered unique because of its graceful decoration, pure and well-wearing hair, and perfect balance of stiffness and flexibility. Among the great variety of Xuan writing and drawing brushes, the rarest and best ones are the Ancient Lanugo Hair, Dream of Flowers Blooming at the Writer's Pen-tip, Fairyland, and Seedpod of the Lotus.
