SUISEKI - Item # 1101
SETAGAWA - ISHI


Origin: Setagawa-ishi. Shiga prefecture, Japan.
Size: 7 x 2 x 3 3/4 inches, 18 x 5 x 9.5 cm (w x h x d)
Kiri Box: Made of kiri wood (Paulownia) and used to store and protect the stone when not on display.
Daiza: Carved in Japan from rosewood. Fine workmanship, it suits and fits the stone very well.
The daiza was crafted by Suzuki Koji and has his maker's signature carved on the underside. Suzuki is widely regarded as one of the best daiza carvers of modern times and crafted many pieces until his sad passing in 2015.
Comments: A fine quality suiseki in the form of a plateau with a rounded distant mountain to the rear, and a large overhang extending to the left giving tension and drama to the stone.
Price: SOLD,with thanks.
