The Dancing Crane Brush Holder is one of the most ornate and exquisitely carved brush holders we offer here at The Chinese Calligraphist. With a core that is carved like a tree trunk, two cranes protrude from this cylinder and seem to actually fly around it. In fact, the cranes are dancing with each other, and also are surrounded by an array of blooms, also extending beyond the trunk.
The crane has long been depicted in Chinese art and respected in Chinese culture. Cranes have become known since ancient times as being virtuous, graceful and having a long life. Because of this, artists love cranes for their great character, and seek these traits both for their art and their own character.
In addition to being a common subject in Chinese art, cranes also are a very popular decoration in houses. The Dancing Crane Brush Holder is beautiful and not only will provide a great decoration for your desk, it also will be a functional object for your studio.
This version of the carved brush holder is a bright brown wood color that allows the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through. The holder also is available in a darker, nearly black color.
