The act of raking gravel or sand into a pattern recalling waves or rippling water, known as samon or hokime, has an aesthetic function. Zen priests practice this raking to help their concentration. Achieving perfection of lines is not easy. Rakes are according to the patterns of ridges as desired and limited to some of the stone objects situated within the gravel area. Nonetheless often the patterns are not static. Developing variations in patterns is a creative and inspiring challenge.
