On the other end of the spectrum, simple Zen-like koi ponds framed in warm wooden slats and lined with polished river stones and oriental plants take on the mood of serenity and balance.
This charming waterfall made of stacked natural stones brings memories of one’s childhood spent in the countryside, wading in ponds, catching fish or swimming with friends.
The rustic design of this fountain and pond reminds of water reservoirs in the homes of affluent families of ancient Roman times. The mystique of the urn-like fountain also brings to mind the mysterious water jugs of Cana in the Biblical account… an unusual piece and conversation starter for the archeologically-inspired home designer.
