The paper describes how to the naked eye of the casual observer in a museum, the work looks like a rough, oblong stone with an unfinished granite-like texture. The paper portrays the overall effect upon the viewer as one of curiosity, rather than awe or power, given that the observer cannot gain full access to the meaning or even the placing of the work. The paper shows how the slab with the sutra ultimately poses more questions than answers, due to its incomplete nature. The paper suggests that this sense of unfinished texture of the stone and the word's meaning is perhaps the most powerful effect of the work.
