New Stone and Mother Nature Designed Daiza Combination

I displayed the following Stone from China with an American grown Daiza. I hope you like the combination of the two.

For me, your composition is suggestive of a snail.  A very fine root-wood snail of similar form can be seen on the Mingei Japanese Arts (Paris) website [linked HERE].

The Mingei website notes:
The snail is a universal symbol of the moon. It also symbolizes perpetual movement and periodic regeneration. In Japan, many poets have celebrated the snail.

Little snail
Inch by inch
Climb Mt. Fuji!
Haiku of Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)

That snail –
One horn long, one short,
What’s on his mind?
Haiku Yosa Buson (1716-1783)

I like your vision of a snail, I agree it does resemble a snail. Thanks for the Jap. link as well!
