JGarden Description:A walled karesansui garden. It can be entered from the street or viewed from the MFA's second floor. 




I would not paint a face, a rock,
nor brooks, nor trees. Mere semblences
of things, but something more than these.
That art is best to which the soul's range
gives no bound. Something besides the form,
something beyond the sound.
