|Origin:||Kamogawa-ishi. Kyoto prefecture, Japan.|
|Size:||18 x 8 x 8 cm (w x h x d)|
|Comments:||An elegant, crescent shaped stone with a hollow in the top and an interesting recess in the front with detailed texture.
Judging from the water mineral deposits around the rim of the main pool and on the front of the stone, it is evident this suiseki has age to it and has often been displayed.|
This stone can be seen in two ways, if the hollow is filled with water it becomes a waterpool stone, if left empty it can be seen as a weathered, rustic boat with its prominent prow rising out of the water.
This stone does not have a daiza - being a waterpool, or boat stone, ideally it should be displayed in a suiban, or doban and to illustrate this I have shown the stone in a suiban by Juetsu, please note this (or the sand) is not included with the sale, however, the suiban is available HERE
