Chinese artist He Wenjun decided to make some very, very big art – and to do that, he built the biggest paintbrush in the world.

The brush, which is 12ft long and weighs 115lbs, was used to create traditional calligraphy in a special exhibition in Nanchong, southern China.

The artist says he built the brush himself using hair from the tails of 300 horses – and claims it can soak up enough ink to add more than 100lbs to the brush’s weight.
