Scholar's Rock

28 May 2020 Traditionally appreciated by Chinese philosophers, scholar’s rocks can be any size or any color. These abstract forms were meant to represent nature in miniature on which the scholar could meditate on the beauty and mystery of nature.

A work in progress laying on my workbench, waiting to be engineered, stained and finally assembled, “Last Stand II” still displays such mystery, even lying down.
