The preferred aesthetic of a Scholar’s Rocks is based on
subtleties of color, shape, markings, surface of wood,
and sound. Prized qualities include awkward symmetry,
resonance of sound when struck, resemblance to
mountainous landscapes and texture. Stones are often
displayed on a wood pedestal that has been carved
specifically for the stone.
Scholars' Rocks also known as Gongshi have been
collected for aesthetic and religious purposes evolving
from the use of larger stones in gardens for over 1,000
years. These stones were also used by scholars (also
known as literati) for meditation and inspiration.
Scholars' Rocks can be a variety of stone, set on carved
rosewood pedestals. With a range in form and color,
coarse or smooth and have dramatic form meant to evoke
feeling from the viewer.
