Object Description

Scholars’ rocks are so called because they are naturally occurring shapes which have for hundreds of years been appreciated by Chinese scholars for their aesthetics. It was during the Tang dynasty over 1000 years ago that the important qualities for the rocks were recognised and these were based on symmetry, openness of form, colour, polish and texture of the surface as well as resemblance to landscapes or figures. This large stone is intrinsically very appealing with its varied spaces enclosed by a wonderfully convoluted matrix; a delicate sheen highlighting the natural organic form.1774
