Combining calligraphy and engraving, seal carving has traditionally been placed in the elite group of Chinese art forms with calligraphy, painting and poetry. These seals have been used since ancient times to imprint a unique marking identifying the artist of a work.
That marking is essentially the "signature" of the artist, and Chinese artists have long taken pride in developing unique and distinctive designs for their seal stones. The Chinese Calligraphist offers a wide variety of seal stones to choose from, as well as other accessories like carving knives and seal paste.
