This is a good example of a karesansui garden with white gravel around an arrangement of two rocks. Although the surrounding architectural structures are much larger, shown in this way, these rocks have great presence and appear to be massive. William chose to capture only these stones in order to express simplicity, and purposely not include the other well-known rocks in the garden. While it may convey an abstract idea about Zen teaching, this rock arrangement can also be a minimal representation of the actual universe and space. This image is about purity and strength.
