Sculpture and Ginkakuji
After reviewing "stock pile" I had to look at the real deal.
It's at a temple in Kyoto, Gingkakuji or the Silver Temple. The truncated cone of gravel sits in a white sand garden. But to get the full aesthetic experience there are even more parameters. It's meant to be viewed by moonlight. (image from Dellaratta.com)
There's nothing left to chance, but plenty of room for fallen leaves and moonlight. That's art.
Cue the music...
"...Every little detail plays a part
Having just a vision's no solution
Everything depends on execution
Putting it together, that's what counts..." from Sunday in the Park with George.
