The story says that this killer brush was first made of "ox-ear" hair and was given to Pablo Picasso as a special gift by Chang Daichien(Zhang Daqian) during their publicized summit in Nice, France in 1956.
Chang Dachien was the first artist who invented this "ox-ear" brush idea and had them custom made for him. The ox-ear hair brush was considered as the best brush by master Chang and shared them with his best friends. Today it is still a rare treasure and perfect gift item.
This specialty brush is made of extra long fine synthetic and natural ox hair with sharp points and long spring body so it can carry ink fully without dropping and deliver smooth lines without delay. It is great for doing cursive style calligraphy and freestyle painting. Good for bamboo and orchid, flowers and birds, rocks and mountains.
Brush handle 9"
This limited edition is special ordered from my friend brush master Xu Laosan in China.
