      A moon gate rises out of the earth, like the moon rises in the sky; both spheres celebrate the continuous cycle of birth and death...rising and falling...

      Moon gate, built of unmortared granite blocks, built in 1996 by Dave Araneo of Massachusetts. “It’s is one of the oldest technologies around,” Dave says. “You build a wood form, place the stones to either side, and build up. Then you finish with a keystone and remove the form. There is a wonderful energy to these structures.” More recently, Dave constructed a small moon gate using flat pieces of stone. “I used a garbage can for the form, then kicked it out. It has survived storms . . . it may even survive grandchildren!” Via: artsandcraftshomes.com

      The moon gate frames the pagoda style pavilion and the "good karma" boulder. Masons hand chiseled each stone on site and set the stone against a wooden arched form which was later removed. By McHale Landscape Design, Upper Marlboro, MD. mchalelandscape.com

      The Mên-an-Tol, (the hole stone) Cornwall, United Kingdom. Also known as the Crick Stone for it heals a crick in the back. This Bronze Age monument has been standing in West Cornwall for nearly 4500 years and local legend claims if a woman passes through the stone hole seven times backwards on a full moon, she will soon become pregnant.

      The existing stones act as both a support mechanism and as a foil to the textures of the stone that they brought onto the site. After a few years, the moongate stones will age and blend in with the rest of the stone on the site. Massachusetts. By magmadesigngroup.com

      In the Chinese home and garden:
      "Doors either did not exist or were left open. (Socially, closed doors were not considered courteous since they implied exclusion, while the open door symbolized the welcome extended by the essentially out-going Chinese temperament with its spontaneous and natural relationships developed over the ages in the highly socialized life of a large family). Doors were often only a means of enhancing a view into the garden or to the scenery beyond, such as the moon door, a beautifully placed circle framing some special outlook. Not only was every aspect used to its full natural advantage but “if one can take advantage of a neighbour’s view one should not cut off the communication, for such a ‘borrowed prospect’ is very acceptable." From the Yün Yeh, a Ming treatise on gardening.


      "The garden was not, however, merely aesthetic but creative and a reminder of, and contact with, the creative forces and the great cycle of the seasons, birth, maturity, decay, death and rebirth." From The Symbolism of the Taoist Garden by J.C. Cooper.
