Chinese Limestone Basin

About

This limestone basin was carved by hand over two centuries ago, and like many Chinese designs, has an elegantly simple form. In China, rock as an element is classified as "yang" because it is strong, hard, durable and "male." It is an element that would be balanced perfectly by the delicate flowers and plants present in a garden. This stone basin has aged beautifully over time.
