The design idea for this one is from the most famous Stone Garden, that is located in The Temple of the Dragon at Peace, in Japan. Stone Garden (also called “dry landscapeEh) is a rather unique element in Japanese Temples. By careful arrangement of rocks, water features, gravel and plants, the architect tries to appear the mountain, river, and nature with the limited area and materials. Dry landscapes are usually created for temples of Zen Buddhism, because they represent the beauty of Zen way of architecture design. The Maki-e Sekitei iPhone case contains seashell, gold and urushi.
