The Horsetail Whisk is associated with spiritual power in different cultures.

The horsetail whisk originated as a fly whisk. A compassionate tool, it whisks away the insects instead of killing them. In ancient times when a Daoist disciple would leave their temple to travel as a wandering monk, their master would give them three gifts, including a horsetail whisk. If the disciple was tempted to return to secular life, the whisk would serve as a reminder that Thoughts were like mosquitoes buzzing around them, and could be swept away. Horsetail whisks are also used in Daoist rituals as a spiritual tool for purifying a space and removing evil entities.

In the African Maasai society the whisk is carried by modern African monarchs.
