Elevated on a wood base, this mesmerizing stone once resided in a scholar’s studio as a source of beauty and creative inspiration. Meditating on the stone’s intriguing, suggestive form, the scholar found inspiration in the textured surface as a microcosm of the universe. Prized for their density and dark gray tones, lingbi stones form with intriguing negative spaces and have a naturally polished look that accentuates the stone's expressive veining. We've likened this lingbi stone to a mythical qilin, an auspicious creature thought to bring luck and protection. Divine and peaceful creatures, qilin are believed to be benevolent protectors of those with good intentions.
