According to the book, what is “great art?”Does man have the capability to create it, or is God the only proficient artist?
How do the empty spaces (silences) of a piece of art communicate?
Why do the things leftunstated, unexpressed, and unsketched add to the artwork and make us feel more spiritual?

What does Yen Mah discover at the end of the book that shesbeen endlessly searching for?Does she really find it?What Truth is everyone really seeking?How does Yen Mah find God through the carving of the rocks? Can truth be recognized or is it a concept we have created? Ifit can be recognized, how?
