Trip to the Asian Civilisations Museum (The 3 artifacts-artifact 3)

Our group focused on the chinese civilization.
The 3 artifacts:
3. Stationary (Writing material)

During the olden days, Chinese use brushes and ink slabs to write. Ink slabs had to be mixed with a bit of water for it to be used effectively. Now, we seldom use these way of writing and is normally seen as an art now. Ink pens have replaced the use of brush and ink slabs and have made writing easier. Now there is also a way to erase mistakes we made not like the olden days where once a mistake was made, they had to redo the whole thing.
