   The Tiger Glen Garden abstracts the story of the Three Laughers of the Tiger Glen, an ancient Chinese parable that describes three men (a Taoist, a Confucianist and a Buddhist) who overcome their sectarian differences to find a unity of friendship.

   Made primarily of moss and stones, the image of water in the garden is expressed through patterns of small stones.The garden sits in the new wing of the Johnson Museum designed by Pei Cobb Freed
