The Dreaming Dualist brush sports an aesthetically interesting handle crafted from a single bamboo stem by master brush maker Zhou Xiaobing. The Chinese characters carved on the upper part of the brush handle, Yi Shu Yi Hua, translate to "Suited for Calligraphy, Suited for Painting".

Master Zhou ensured that this inscription was no mere boost by creating the tip of this soft hair brush from the finest goat hair, which he sourced from the fertile grasslands of the Yangtze River Delta in central China, where the healthy and strong animals produce the best hair.

The unparalleled absorbency and softness of the Dreaming Dualist brush makes it an ideal choice for both Sumi-e and fineline painting. The excellent grip provided by the bamboo brush makes this soft hair brush well-suited for the deliberate and structured calligraphic forms that characterize the Kai Shu, Li Shu and Zhuan Shu scripts.
