Floor Mat- Zen Garden
Gravel raked into a spiral whirlpool pattern is a motif found in many Zen gardens. As the gravel suggests the flow of water, it
invites the mind in meditation to focus on the fluidity of the present moment. The Fourteenth century Zen priest Muso Soseki is
credited as being the first to consider the garden as a medium for meditation. Muso imbued his gardens with the Zen aesthetic
of simplicity and smallness. The influence of Zen transformed Japanese gardens from places of amusement and relaxation to
areas for contemplation and solitude. In Zen, the practice of gardening serves as both an active meditation for the gardener and
a form of visual instruction for the observer.
