I found out it from a long river yesterday. I see it two birds are singing on the branch, another bird is gamboling in water. Dimension: 6.30 x 10.63 x 3.74 Inch

I agree, a lovely image Heven.

I also see another bird flying up from the water to join his friends on the branch.

Hello Alan, what is Rorschach? I can't find out it by dictionary, only a bit know by internet that a fictional comic book superhero featured, I guess it is not correct response.Smile

Handsome? Me? I think my friends will laugh when they read this! Embarassed But thank you anyway.

Rorschach is a test used by psychiatrists. It is a number of cards, each one containing a blot of ink. The patient must describe what he sees within each ink blot and the doctor can use this to assess how the patients mind is working. It is very similar to us seeing pictures in stones!

I hope this is explained well enough for you.

Hi Heven,

Wow, It's too lovely. I agree with you, but I see total three birds flying together. Also they pick up the preys with their claws. Smile

Thanks you for sharing.

Viewers see the bird image slightly differently, and several imagine water-- "birds gamboling in water" or "birds flying while holding prey (often a waterside image)." Water is among the least obvious images, but it is called its the scene inexplicitly by a few horizontal strokes of color. We could hold several recognitions of "birds above water" to imagine together or be held to a single image with an explicit title.

The stone's wood seat is expertly close-fitted and its quasi-modern lines (perhaps, the segmental arch between legs suggestive of Biedermier furniture, too) allows the simple image on the stone to draw attention well.

This stone could be easily overlooked. Instead, it was recognized and elevated with proper mounting.

The image is so vague that it might be elevated again through arrangement with other objects. The stone recalls a thematic displays by Jim Greaves in his "Beyond the Black Mountain" exhibition & book. Heven's wood seat also recalls seats crafted by (or for) Jim & Alice Greaves. Jim is a wonder at artistic display, & Heven is in close alignment with such skill in preparing this stone for viewing...

Jim's thematic display scene in Beyond the Black Mountain...


Another thematic display scene from the same exhibit...


A stone seat lightened with a shallow segmental arch between the implied feet of Jim's stone...


Heven's skill in presentation raises this stone tremendously. Her recent comment to Harleyrider (I think) re' that we are all beginners as students in stone appreciation also warms me to her feeling in regard to this stone.

Hi HuuHiep,

Thank you for your comment. Some friends told me that is a duck in river. A Chinese proverb say 'Oriole in sky, mandarin duck in water. Meaning happiness coming.Smile
