What is your name, stone?
"Each of the stones has a name: for example the large stone in the center of the pond is known as "Ecstatic Contemplation", while another, that forms a stone bridge, is called the "Bridge of the Pillar of the Immortals".
Each vista is meant to bring to mind a reference to one of the Chinese of Japanese literary classics."
