Gracefully balanced on a custom steel base, the unique contours of this lingbi stone inspired its celestial name, "Moon Mountain." The dynamic and sculptural forms of Chinese scholars' rocks have inspired painters, poets, and calligraphers for thousands of years. Known as gongshi, or scholars' rocks, lingbi stones such as this were fixtures of the scholars' studio, displayed as sources of beauty and creative inspiration. Meditating on the stone’s sculptural form, the scholar found inspiration in the dynamic surface as a microcosm of the natural world. Prized for their density and dark gray tones, lingbi stones form with intriguing negative spaces and have a naturally polished appearance.
