Gongshi or scholar's rocks are naturally occuring and vary in size and shape. Traditionally, these stones were appreciated by Chinese scholars and a subject of many traditional Chinese paintings. Gongshi are ideally showcased in a meditation place, thinking space, a library or in an office. The abstraction of these stones is said to draw the mind into the imagination. The interest of scholar's rocks is based on subtleties of color, shape (asymmetry is highly prized), markings and surface.
