Karesansui (dried landscape) describes the artistic stone gardens in Japan.
They consist merely of gravel raked to represent ripples in the water.
Monks use these gardens for mediation.
The book «Listen to the Water» is a graphical interpretation of this art and uses lines to represent the way that water flows from the mountains down to the sea. Without seeing even a drop of water, one can stumble upon blustering brooks and raging whirlpools.
