Calligraphy Brushes at Liulichang Market

Calligraphy Brushes at Liulichang Market - The Liulichang is a famous district in Beijing that is known for its traditional Chinese architecture and also its antique market that sells various craftwork, artistry, calligraphy, inkstones and antiques. Its name Liulichang came from during the time of Ming Dynasty when a colored glaze factory produced glazed tiles for the palaces and temples in the city. Liulichang was a favorite haunt for scholars, painters and calligraphers who gathered there to write and purchase books, as well as to paint and compose poetry but continues to thrive as a market aimed at tourists.
