When: Tue., Jan. 21, 6:30-7:30 p.m. 2020

Rocks appealed to the scholars’ love of mountains and, when placed in a garden, brought the mountains into an urban setting. In thia scholar’s study, collected rocks sometimes served as brush rests or ink stones, but most served as vehicles for contemplation - which means they were appreciated more for their aesthetic merits than for their functional possibilities.
