Solve This Puzzle: What Is This Mystery Object?

Artist's Description

Put on your thinking caps and, most of all, have fun! You can have as many guesses as you want ….

Spoiler alert: do not read any further unless you want to see the answer.

Solved by Linda Bianic, who correctly identified the large brushes as ink brushes for Asian script. However, when I saw these in Malaysia, at a calligrapher’s store, I asked about the size of the brushes, because they were about a metre or so long, with the bristles almost seven or eight centimetres wide and about twelve or fourteen centimetres long.

I was told they were special brushes to produce large-scale calligraphy used on streets or pavements.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/45 sec, ISO 400, focal length 68mm.
