> DESCRIPTION

We all know that Taihu rocks are rare because they have been “sculpted” by nature over hundreds of millions of years.? Since the form, character, and aura of such a rock cannot be made by man, its creative energy is “unreplicable”, thus becoming the object of affection for Chinese literati.?It is said that due to centuries of quarrying it is very rare nowadays to find stones in Lake Taihu.?In order to obtain another one, we must wait for the next major seismic change, but since this process is so long, hundreds of generations will pass before that day.?Because of this, I have developed an installation that can create real Taihu rocks naturally in under one hour.? Although my generator is manufactured, with it one can achieve an effect like that of nature
– Zhan Wang
Daily performance from 10 am – 12 pm and 3 to 5 pm.
