Project Description add commentupload similar

While on a trip to Shanghai, I bought a bunch of antique Mao Bi which means paintbrush in Mandarin.  I wanted an elegant way to display them and came up with this.  I bought a silk Chinese scarf to serve as the backdrop and brought it to a local Chinese framer.  He did a beautiful job and it's quite a conversation piece.
