The name of this design is called máolus – meaning máo bi (Chinese brush) + stylus. In Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, it is practiced in a unique way that requires the user to hold the brush in a vertical gesture. Moreover, the tip of the brush is always kept pointed for easier control of brush stroke width. The nylon rope at the end of the brush is a salute to the traditional Chinese brush design. Overall, the máolus is a combination of Chinese heritage with today’s technology, integrating the past wisdom into future possibility.

In this way, the wax melts uniformly, revealing the heart inside. The candle can have different scents which can produce a very pleasant atmosphere. At a first glance, people would think that it is a usual candle, but as the candle melts they can discover its special feature.
