A Chinese seal or hanko is a seal or stamp features name or character that is used to prove authorship on documents and arts. Not limited to name seal, a seal can contain the person's personal philosophy, literary inclination, favourite poetic phrase or unique motif with intricate designs. It's a symbolic of identity, status, and culture.
Traditionally seals are made of stones, sometimes of wood, metal and bamboo. Seal-craving requires a mastery of both skills in the art of calligraphy and carving for engraving every single character or motif onto the tiny surface by hand.
Seal script is one of the styles in calligraphy and have been widely used on seals. Although seal script long ago has departed from everyday use, it still survives and flourishes today on the basis of its exceptional artistic qualities.
