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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
