when it comes to "seeing" animal figures, it is always enjoyable to see others responses to the suggestion. it seems some will immediately grasp it while others admitt they don't quite "see it". I'm afraid in both cases I'm with the later group Smile

Yo Dick! Don't try so hard,
it will just pop up!

take a look at the first stone,
notice small bump at very top,
off center to the left(top of head)... Suspect
follow that bump down, turns into ridge(elephant trunk)
look at round bump on right side top(it the ear)
match across to the other ear, opposite side
notice the front right side of stone, top to bottom
it the elephant looking right at you... Basketball

Next stone is even easier,
1st notice the oval bump to the top right,(red head)... Suspect
on that bump, look for where you would find a mouth,
then see were the eyes would be on same bump. face
The rest of the stone is the shape of a large ape.
images pulled from memories of Circus in town... Basketball

something I've discovered about myself. If i looked at this rock with no one else's suggestion of a group of monkey's I would never come up with the idea. But once the suggestion is made, now i look and find it.

Nice compliment to the stone, Dick.

I have a similar reaction to John Naka's "30,000 Foot Beard" stone (illustrated on p. 10 in the March 2011 edition, California Aiseki Kai newsletter (linked HERE))...
One stone may have a title that makes it riveting for the viewer. John Naka’s “30,000 Foot Beard” suiseki at the U.S National Arboretum is shaped like a cigar (though not perfectly symmetrical) and is largely deep in color with two wispy white streaks running along part of its length. It is mounted vertically. With John’s title, you can imagine a face high on the stone with a wispy thin beard falling from it. You can also imagine a tall, thread waterfall of unimaginable (30,000 foot) height viewed from such great distance that is seems part mythic and part real. In this stone, that title is perhaps 30% or more in value of appreciating the stone. The stone with this title is rare & coveted. Because it was given to the (USA) National Bonsai & Penjing Museum by the beloved bonsai teacher John Naka, a knowledgable viewer will also feel the warmth of John in this stone, which influences its reception for many. The category of shape for which many stones might be judged is far less important on this stone, though its material solidity & wholeness are necessary to not deflect from its reception.
