Chinese Scholar’s Rock, Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)

Confucius once said, “the humane man loves mountains.” Is this why scholars kept a rock on their desk? Or was it for inspiration or meditation? Docent Mardelle Mikus will explore our Chinese scholar’s rock and other objects found on his desk in the Asian Gallery.
