Nhk Japanese Culture Book - Karesansui Rock Garden For Sale
Limited supply at
Japanese Culture Book
Karesansui - (Japanese Rock Gardens)
Lovely book displaying Japanese
rock gardens. The main elements of karesansui are rocks and gravel, with
water bodies symbolized by gravel raked in patterns to suggest surface
movement. Plants are less important, and in some cases, irrelevant.
Karesansui are usually meant to be viewed from a single, seated position.
Although its commonly believed in the West that karesansui can calm the mind,
they don't have this purpose in Japanese tradition, which treat them as aesthetic
and symbolic compositions rather than meditative aids.
This publication would be a useful for those with an interest in Japanese
gardens, and especially, minimal-plant or non-plant landscaping.
