Hi Riversoul... While there are collectors of landscape view stones who don't appreciate the hidden backside view of the stone as important, in some stone circles the backside is extremely important. Even the bottom of a stone & the bottom of its seating (which is seldom seen, except by the owner) can raise appreciation of a stone.

In Japanese suiseki practice which is particularly focused on landscape views, the notion of "three sides-- the front/back, top/bottom & left/right" expressing a natural view is very important. Many details related to the notion of three-sides support some stones as better landscape view stones than others.

The backside of stone you picture with the owner moving it off the edge of the table is extremely engaging as natural in contour & texture. The backside is particularly appealing in raising appreciation of this stone as a mountain view.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Riversoul

It is very nice to see the two Jiu Long Bi stones....waterpolished as they are, is this rare?...I have only seen one like this before, but many as they are found in the Mountains (raw edges).
The last mountainstone in the doban is my favourite, as it has many features I like about suiseki....a triangle birdsviewshape.... having the high part to one side, smaller to the other side. Also is the stones front orientated towards the viewer with a gently bend of the front...it has to be a beauty when shown in a weath suiban having a little water in the pools  Smile .
MANY THANKS for sharing...hope to see more stones from you.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Dick

I have thought about making a daiza like this....this one on the photo is ONE piece...very often are they a regular daiza, and then is a stand carwed to fit the daiza, so that the result is very similar to the one on the Photo...this give the owner more than one displayoption.
When I run out of stones that need a daiza soon, will I maybe feel ready to make a such...I am planning to try, at least  Smile 

Kind regards Yvonne
