The four treasures of the study
The Four Treasures of the Study:

  • The Four Treasures of the Study are the four materials used in Chinese Calligraphy. They are the following:

  • Brush

  • Ink Stick

  • Ink Stone

  • Paper


Brush
Brush

  • Brushes used to be made with animal hair such as weasel, badger, goat and rabbit with handles made of bamboo.

  • Some people make brushes with baby hair.


Ink stick
Ink Stick

  • The ink stick is a form of artificial ink used in calligraphy.

  • A picture of an ink stick

    made in the form of a lotus

    leaf and flowers.


Ink stone
Ink Stone

  • The ink stone is used to grind the ink stick into powder, which is then

    mixed with water in the

    depression of the ink stone.

  • This method of making ink allows the artist or writer to control the ink-to-water ratio used.


Paper
Paper

  • Before the invention of paper, bamboo slips and silk were used as writing material.

  • Paper is one of the most important inventions from China that we still use to this day, although the formation of our paper differs from that of ancient paper.
