Working within the rarefied atmosphere of his studio, a Chinese scholar gazed upon the evocative formations of this spirit stone, seeking aesthetic and philosophical inspiration. Meditating on the stone’s natural perforations and undulating surface, the scholar experienced the stone as a microcosm of the universe. Red in color and displayed on a hand-carved rosewood stand, this exceptionally expressive stone rivals modern sculpture with its naturally abstract forms and dramatic contrast of shadow and light.

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.”
