"simply sharing again"

Post  stonener on Tue Sep 03, 2013 8:35 pm

One of my favorite symbols is the Enzo.
Japanese word meaning circle a concept strongly associated with Zen
It symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength & elegance.
In Japanese Aesthetic symbolizes "expression of the moment"

Thanks Jason
For taking the time to comment a little goes a long way when you put it all out there.
Especially for those of us who are looking for acknowledgement of our efforts to share our love of suiseki.
IMHO this stone has a spiritual image and meaning that needs no words to express it...Basketball 

Kakejiku it's 100% as found, completely natural
as picked up from a rock pile about to become crushed gravel for cement.
When wet the colors are intense and in perfect contrast, the yellow has shades of gold
and the black comes alive as a perfect dark background color....Basketball 

I like to tell a story or communicate a thought using three stones with a two shelf display stand,
looking for suggested theme of third stone? what say you?
A. Enzo stone top center position
B. Daruma right 1st level position
C. not sure of image or shape for 3rd table top position?...Basketball 

This is meant to stimulate deeper thinking in a feeling way, with stones.
With no words like in Tokonoma display style using your eyes not your mouth
Please if you have nothing nice to say or contribute in a positive way
say nothing at all, already had enough no value negativism!...Basketball

Thanks for the background on the stone. You rescued it from being obliterated.

I am having trouble envisioning three items on a two shelf display, but maybe you are thinking third element to be placed on the ground separate from the shelf. I may not be seeing the same thing as you, but hopefully this could be a suggestion that has some possibility. In the display style I study, it usually does not have the Heaven, Man, Earth theme involved, but your first two seemed natural for this...
1. Enso (represents Heaven) unattainable perfection and also symbolizes the meditation practice of #2
2. Daruma (represents Man) in his quest to meditate and try to reach #1
3. Distant Mountain Stone (represent Earth) and a common practice is for #2 to go to the mountains to meditate and reach #1

Maybe this does not fit with the Tana you plan to use, but I gave it a shot in the dark anyway. Hope you feel this is a positive post to help spur your imagination.

Now this is the stuff dreams are made of!...Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven 
Kakejiku "Gate Keeper" extraordinaire!
This is exactly what I had hoped for!
Clean, Clear cut information backed up in a positive way!
Makes learning fun and opens minds and eyes forever!...Suspect 
Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita

As you say!, YES, Yes, & yes perfect...Basketball 
one picture thousand words, see here,
my Tana display entered in BCI 50 years Best Competition
only to show theme idea strives to share with viewer.



In this grouping Chinese Zodiac Calendar 3 of 12 years
Current idea would replace these Zodiac stones with Enzo, Daruma and now mountain as suggested
see here Enzo #1, daruma #2 & mountain #3

1. Enzo top 1st level center position


2. Daruma right side 2nd level shelf


3.Mountain 3rd left side ground level


For those riding the wave "it's the journey not the destination" that counts,
hope it was as much fun for you as it was for me...Basketball

Yo Dre! you'd love this one...Basketball 
I once saw a picture of a baby's play pen,
Had a 12' Burmese Albino Python sticking out across both ends,
belly swollen so big could not pass through rails on ether side!...Suspect
