SUISEKI - Item # 1213
KASANAMI - ISHI


Origin: Kasanami-ishi. Hyogo prefecture, Japan.
Size: 4 3/4 x 2 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches, 12 x 7 x 8.5 cm (w x h x d)
Storage Box: Made of kiri wood (Paulownia) and used to store and protect the stone when not on display.
Written on the lid from right to left is...
"wabi no tamari" ("The Wabi Waterpool")

"Sekido sanji" (The name of the person who wrote the inscription and presumably owned the stone)
Comments: A naturally formed crescent shaped stone with a hollow, which when filled with water becomes the pool.
This stone does not have a daiza. Being a waterpool stone, ideally it should be displayed in a suiban, or doban, to illustrate this I have shown the stone in a doban, please note the doban is not included with the sale, but it is available HERE
