Seals for Chinese calligraphy & painting (part 1)

A Chinese seal is both practical as a tool and enjoyable as an art, hence becoming a collectible for scholars and art lovers. These are some of my collections of seals. When choosing a Chinese custom seal for our calligraphy or painting, we prefer better stones carved by professional seal carvers, and the stones need to be in good boxes to prevent dropping or cracking.
Seals are a trusted tool used for the authentication of items of ownership. From government to personal use, seals can represent a persons power, and function as a symbol of authentication in dealings among people.

    Yes, it’s not so difficult to duplicate and forge someone else’s seals and use them as authentication on painting and calligraphy. These are complex issues of connoisseurship which have been existing for almost the entire history of Chinese calligraphy, painting, and seals.
