According to legend, stones have been revered in China since at least the third millenium B.C., when they were presented as tribute to Emperor Yu, a mythical sage-ruler. Stones were prized and collected for display in gardens and, probably, interiors from the Han dynasty onward, and by the Tang dynasty a true literature of stones had appeared. This tradition of stone collecting, which was to find its ultimate expression during the second half of the late Ming dynasty, focused on stones as representations of the universe in miniature, or, more precisely, of the inchoate energies that created th

00 Cheju Island, Korea's historic island of exile, with a harsh natural environment, early developed a negative image as human habitat. The author challenges this perception and shows how Neo-Confucian state ideology during the Yi dynasty (A.D. 1392-1910) created and conserved the island as a viable habitat by using feng-shui--a powerful medieval science of surveying--to shape the island's built environment and quality of life.
