This 19th century "Cliff on a Mountain" Chinese viewing stone is known as a scholars' rock. These types of rocks were prized by Chinese scholars as vital sources of inspiration for painting, poetry and calligraphy. The unique formation of the natural limestone—bringing to mind a majestic cliff atop a mountain—inspired its name. Each shift of light or turn of the stone encourages contemplation. A custom-carved mount was designed simply to complement the stone's varied and complex dimension.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
