This round limestone basin was hand-carved over 200 years ago in China's Shandong province. Originally used as a water trough on a Qing-dynasty farm, the basin has three handles intended for hitching animals. In China, rock as an element is classified as "yang" because it is strong, hard, durable, and "male." It is an element that would be well balanced by delicate flowers and lush greenery. With its textured surface and asymmetrical form, this beautifully aged stone basin is the perfect eye-catching garden planter.
