Made of porcelain with a poetry carved and shaped like a plum flower - a color that often represents immortality - the Black Flower - Chinese Porcelain Brush Rest is an elegant and traditional stage to place your brushes when you are not using them.

With a handle shaped like the dragon tile. The legend of the Dragon (Long) dates all the way back to ancient China. As an agricultural society, the Chinese people created the magical creature hoping to find a way to control the rain. Legends describe the dragon as a combination of several animals - it has the body of a snake, the claws of an eagle, the scales of a fish, the horns of a goat, the beard of a lion and the tail of a hyena.

Because of this, the dragon became known as a symbol of power and strength, and is usually used as the sign of the king. It also is one of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

Since the dragon has long been so important in Chinese culture, it is no surprise that it also became particularly prominent in Chinese art, and has remained popular from ancient times up until now. This brush rack celebrates the influence of the dragon, which hopefully will inspire artists in their own future projects.

The rest can be used to hold up to five brushes, and will look great whether it is in use or just sitting on your desk as a decoration while you are in between projects. It is as beautiful as it is functional, and will be a great addition to your studio you can appreciate for years to come.
