Lovely stone. Is it a Ligurian palombino limestone?

I realize how difficult daiza carving is, so please don't take this the wrong way. To me the daiza is too thick and has feet in the wrong places. It would look much better with a very dark or black finish.

Something along these lines.

Incredible Mountain stone!

But Ja, your daiza must improve.

Kev is on the right track but you need Yvonnes feminine touch.

But hey you need a plus for doing it. That makes you one up from me, you should see my first and only daiza, its horrid! hihihihih hi hi

stone appreciation seems to be very much in the eye of the beholder...
growing up liking "cool rocks" is something i never really grew out of,
but only recently have i begun to really "appreciate" the beauty inherent in some stones...

having said that, i really like this one...

however, like others, i was immediately distracted by the color of the daiza,
but i didnt notice the feet being odd until KB pointed it out...
having done so, i can see how different placement would improve it...

such as, eliminating the one that is "dead center" as it appears to be supporting the weight of the mountain... scratch

maybe thats not what KB was getting at, but thats what i see...

(btw andre - one of our forum silent AAC members (brian s) has been honing his whittling skills on some daizas and has had some really good results... this winter he will be working on one for me and i will post it when done... if you need something carved by one of "us", just reach out to him...)

So Kev....how about showing where the feet go on the back side of the daiza and is black the only color that could be suggested to replace the red.

I think this kind of thread really helps those who view but do not comment to better understand the connection of dai to stone. Smile

Thnks all

Hi..
Yes daiza too thick but i know you will eventually develope a fine skill to make one in the near future... Feet placement is vital in the presentation KB gave a good example where it should be place..the balance of feet placement will enhance the view of your stone,more feet doesn't mean good sometimes less is better :-) as for the color i think each person has their on preference...redish i don't like it also...sorry about my candidness.. Darker shade of  brown or walnut would be more realistic to wood color and give more elegant look..thanks

Regards..

PS
The tinier the feet are the nicer it will look..

An inspirational change in daiza. Hoping the fitting required no change to the stone's underside, I can imagine temptation to make the change, nonetheless.

Whether the new seating was accomplished nearer the last report (~ 5 years ago) or more recently, it embodies rising accomplishment.

Thanks for sharing.
