This 19th-century round basin was carved by hand from a solid block of limestone, and like many Chinese designs, has an elegantly simple form. In China, rock as an element is classified as "yang" because it is strong, hard, durable, and "male." It is an element that is well balanced in traditional gardens by delicate flowers and lush greenery. A small drainage hole through its base turns this beautifully aged stone basin into the perfect garden planter.
