Writing Brush

During the Han dynasty, the equipment used by writers included brushes, ink sticks, ink stones, blades, and slips made of bamboo or wood. To judge from artifacts found in Chü-yen, anyone who wished to practice writing tended to use a brush, a ku, and recycled slips. Besides Chü-yen, brushes have also been excavated from the ruins of the Han frontier settlements such as Ma-chüan-wan and Hsüan-ch’üan-chi in Tun-huang.
