A unique and very rare big-sized brush which makes a great centerpiece of every brush collection.
Hand crafted in one of our manufacturers in China's Jiangxi province with hand-selected horse hair bristles and a handle made of the horn of a type of water buffalo which can be found in this region and which is used because of its very big horns which are needed for this kind of brush.
The bristles of white horse hair remain resilient despite their length and the massiveness of the tip but at the same time store very large amount of ink, therefore allowing you to create large strokes without interruption.
The natural characteristics of the long horse hair tip allow painting techniques normally only feasible with smaller brushes - a result that cannot be reached with industrially manufactured brushes often used for large canvas painting. Therefore, this brush is specially crafted for experienced artists who know how to handle such a brush with two hand movements to reach the desired results in their artworks. Traditionally these types of brushes are used for very large script calligraphy.
