A meteor impact 70 million years ago formed what is now Tai Lake in eastern China. Naturally perforated limestone rocks found near the lake area called Taihu and are among the most prized of Chinese “scholar’s rocks”. *
The organic sculptural quality of Taihu rock inspired this composition in feather rock set on a small Corian pedestal. In the foreground are dwarf arrowhead plants (syngonium) in a submerged planter.
Waterfalls cascading through the rock’s many tunnels into the pool below create distinctive natural music for meditation.
