BODIDHARMA-- Bodhidharma (Chinese), Daruma (Japanese)

BODIDHARMA

Viewing stone and Suiseki stone art is art of imagination and abstraction, is the image under art form of natural and life objects. It depends on the view, the culture, the knowledge and the experience of each individual.

Hi Ngoquangvu... Your expression & illustrations touch me with their feeling. You note,
Viewing stone and Suiseki stone art is art of imagination and abstraction, is the image under art form of natural and life objects. It depends on the view, the culture, the knowledge and the experience of each individual.
and...
IT IS A SPIRIT STONE EXACTLY – GOOD ART IMAGINE , HIGH ABSTRACT AND RICH EMOTION.
We collect simple images of Bodhidharma to recall resonances in feeling & understanding that are not easily matched. The image of his sitting in a cave facing a wall with legs crossed underneath his robe (and perhaps, atrophied) is iconic. Often, he carries a fly whisk which can be imagined in one of your stone illustrations. The image of his crossing the Yangtze River on a reed (or "rush leaf") is also iconic. Japanese artists of iki taste imagine him exchanging robes with a courtesan. Innumerable times "down (tilted)" yet always returning to a vertical sitting position is the roly-poly ("tumbler") Daruma doll; it is crafted with one eye added before travel (or making a resolution-- e.g., on New Years) & the other filled upon safe return (or completing a previous resolution)-- suggesting that by living mindfully in each moment we can overcome every obstacle.

Appreciating the extraordinary moral imperatives of our natural universe while living simply, the First Patriarch of Zen shares our true heart...

In another IBC Stone Forum thread, Demtrang's "9 years sitting facing the wall (Bodhidharma)" stone was exceptionally nice for its deep abstraction!

Crossing the Yang-tze River (no wood seat, yet-- please, imagine a "rush leaf" upon which he sails)...
