Abstract
 
Description
The book accompanies an exhibition organized by Robert D. Mowry, curator of Chinese art, Arthur M. Sackler Museum, Harvard University Art Museums.

Essays provide rich insights into the rocks' history and social context, as well as their web of poetic, religious, and philosophical associations. Along with an abundance of research on Chinese records, the book offers ground-breaking scientific analyses in an effort to establish materials and provenance of the rocks, and of their accompanying stands, which are often regarded as minor works of art in their own right.

Color plates of the eighty rocks in the exhibition are accompanied by full descriptions and extensive background materials. Maps, tables, graphs, and comparative figures further enhance this striking foundation study. - from Amzon
