DESK SIZED TAIHU SCHOLAR'S ROCK
Another object that has been in our home for a while. These stones are formed by the erosion of limestone by the currents at the bottom of Lake Tai. They are focal points for contemplation or meditation. This nice example measures 20" tall with the hand carved stand. This stone has been restored about 1/3 of the way up, which you cannot see unless you look hard for it. This stone is currently sitting on my desk.
