I really like the stone in the third picture! The way the daiza is indented is to draw your eye into the opening as if you were being drawn by the current along the shore to be drifted thru

I like the small feet on the daiza of the last pictured stone. I bet that was a difficult daiza to design trying to match with the heavy low profile of the stone. thanks for sharing Smile

Hi Dick Benbow

Thank you for your commends. You are right the last picture is the difficult daiza.

Hello HuuhHiep
I think you mean YUMI-ISHI  Arch stone?,
or HASHIGATA-ISHI  Bridge Shaped Stone?
because DUMON-ISHI  is just a little bit different

cave has floor and can not see back way out.

Please let me share here what I think
This is an agate, it has a cave, can see in but not out!  
I put over light so can see inside easy.
Hi Stonener,

Thank you for your comments.
But I mean DOMON-ishi for tunnel stone and natural arch stone not "DUMON-ishi". I found that in the books of Willi Benz [SUISEKI The Asian Art of Beautiful Strone] and Yuji Yoshimura [The Japanese Art of Stone Appreciation]. Do me a favour and show me more information about these. You are quite right that the cave can in and dark the end. But I considered and enjoyed above stones as the tunnels not Bridge except the fourth.


Thank you for your sharing the pictures of the Agate cave. It is very interesting I like it so much the red color.

My Friend when I realized I was talking about cave and not tunnel like your were,
I removed most of the posting and pictures of the agate also...silent 
But you were to fast and saw before. 

I do not want to offend anyone with what I think, forgive my ignorance...pale 
I too use books as guide for names and a chart also.

SUISEKI The Japanese Art of Miniature Landscape Stones
by Felix G. Rivera, STONE BRIDGE PRESS, Berkeley, California
and yes spelled as you say.

My Chart is by Jack I. Dennis, Research & Documentation 06/01/06 - 07/01/08
were most of my information on names comes from and Tunnel Stone is spelled
DUMON-ISHI, But no problem, we both are talking about the same thing...Basketball 

In your last stone pictured I do see a tunnel, but with  a bridge or arch on top,
so maybe both, could be double classification not really sure.? I could be wrong.
Please let me now show you what I see is a tunnel on a California Jade stone.
Which I understand should have stone floor from front to back, but not by daiza.
Remember my friend this is all just for fun learning and happy talk,
I try hard to be sure of what I write, but in a good way...Basketball 

   

In my humble opinion I think tunnel also is low on mountain so cars, tucks and trains can run though it?...Suspect

Dear my friend, Stonener,

I think, my friend, this is all just for fun learning and happy talk, like you.
No problems about the words are diffrent in spelling. And I also try my best to be sure of what I write could not make you misunderstand me.
I am very interested in learning about suiseki. Forgive me for my recent request. I am a Vietnamese and English is a second language, that is an obstacle to communicate with foreigners. Misunderstandings often happen in anyway

Back our talking,
This is tunnel stone.


They are Arch stones



And this is Arch Stone and Bridge on the top


Are they correct?

Thank you for your useful information.

Best wishes,

HuuHiep

My Friend! I could not do as you do, to speak a second language,
seams impossible for me and I understand many details are lost in translations.
but let us try hard not to have this problem, as another person has...No 

First Let me say that "I love your stones" every single one
They have always been top quality in my opinion...ThumbsUp 
and I would be proud to own anyone of the many you have shared as you know.  
But with these I have, as Dick points out, notice improvements in Daiza construction...Suspect 
designs that maybe someday I too would like to achieve?

Ok let's talk...Basketball 
This topic is a new one to me and I enjoy the learning very much!.
As you say I think is right, but two stones have two important double features...cyclops 
so as you say, 3rd is Bridge over arch, but 4th looks like arch over tunnel.
I am not sure if they can be double classification, why not I would think?
I know some things that are in double category's hybrids like dogs, snakes and fish...cyclops   
So I will ask my Sensei's and get back to you with what they say.
I'm also sure Japanese suiseki rules have already the established answer,
this I would think not the first time this question has happened, for sure!...No 
see here IMHO two stones again with double features...

as you say bridge over arch, fantastic!
 

"except" as you say fourth one, arch over tunnel, amazing  


I am not sure of what I think so I will research more to be sure!
Please let me know too, if you hear more information from others...Basketball
