The Chinese have a beautiful way of finding spirituality through
experiences. Spirituality is sought through ancient practices such as
the mastering of crafts including woodworking and masonry as well as in
the refined movements made in kung fu, tai chi and calligraphy. The concept of the bench is to use one of the masters to make it, building into it this spiritual experience. Carved from a single block of marble, 5 1/2 feet long, weighing 1/2 ton.
