Artist's Description

Ryoan-ji Temple (竜安寺)

Ryoan-ji Temple in Kyoto is famous for its Zen garden, which is considered to be one of the most notable examples of the “dry-landscape” style. Ryoan-ji Temple garden is quintessential Japanese Zen art.

It is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Japanese culture. It is surrounded by low walls, an austere arrangement of fifteen rocks positioned on a bed of white gravel. depending on whee you position yourself – you might not see the 15 rocks at once – different positions offer different views.

There are no distractions of trees, hills, ponds, and no trickling water – Although there is a background of trees growing behind the fence referred to as “borrowed scenery”.
