Chinese Qing Scholar’s Stone

Description

Scholars rocks can be any color, and contrasting colors are not uncommon. The size of the stone can also be quite varied: scholars rocks can weigh either hundreds of pounds or less than one pound. The term also identifies stones which are placed in traditional Chinese gardens. I personally believe they were the first form of contemporary art in history.

In the Tang dynasty, a set of four important qualities for the rocks were recognized. They are: thinness (shou), openness (tou), perforations (lou), and wrinkling (zhou).

Chinese scholar’s rocks influenced the development of Korean suseok and Japanese suiseki.

Measures: Height: 6.75 inches including wooden Stand

Width: 6 inches rock.
