SIX TON SCHOLAR’S ROCK

A SIX TON SCHOLAR’S ROCK FROM  LAKE TAIHU, CHINA TO BE  INSTALLED AT THE SAN ANTONIO MUSEUM OF ART  AT THE EDGE OF RIVER WALK.

It all started when Katherin Luber the museum director mentioned to a visiting delegation from Wuxi (the source of many famous scholar’s rocks) a desire for a Taihu Lake rock…..a thought planted in her mind by Dr. Emily Sano, senior advisor for Asian art, and Shawn Yuan, assistant curator for Asian art. And so it happened that a 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide rock of inverted triangle shape was picked and chosen by Katherine Luber, Emily Sano, and Shawn Yuan and a museum trustee along Lake Taihu in December 2018. The rock will be shipped from Shanghai to the port of Houston early 2019.
.
China and collectors worldwide have appreciated such stones for centuries and used them for inspiration, especially by scholars, poets and painters. The rocks figure prominently in Chinese gardens, and in smaller size on a scholar’s desk.

The rock is expected to be installed in mid 2019.
