Jingshi Scenic Scholar Rock

Scholar rocks are often compared to zen meditation or serene contemplation. However, the rocks embody a rich visual culture of the Chinese literati culture rich with elements from ancient Chinese cultural notions of nature, Daoism, and scholar traditions from the Song Dynasty and later. This rock is portraying a landscape produced by nature. A small inscription can be found on one side of the stone, possibly describing the scene shown.
