Hi Pham... Thanks for sharing. Is the smaller stone placed in front of a larger & darker stone suggesting the form of a bamboo sprout? Are others suggestive as well as decorative?

Alive sprout

Hi Chris...It's right,as you think.This piece of art "Alive sprout " is inspired from mascot(yoni and linga) which were worshiped by the Champa.

Hi Pham... If the "Alive Sprout Bamboo" stone is considered a Linga stone, your Yoni stone appears to dwarf it! The Yoni stone recalls the hood of a cobra separated from its small head/face for me. I could imagine mounting them together with the Alive Sprout Bamboo stone seating raised in height relative to the enveloping stone behind it.

Are bamboo sprouts typically associated with "male/ying/Linga energy?" It is an interesting layering of meaning for a "bamboo sprout" stone.

Are the stone seats displaying a mix of light & dark colored wood made of persimmon, ebony (Madagascar?), another natural wood or crafted by staining? Contrasting-tone persimmon is a very favored wood for some chanoyu "tea ceremony" utensils; it was a favorite of the late 17th century tea utensil collector Matsudiara Fumai, who is credited with categorizing original utensils by famed early masters separated from later treasured utensils.

I love the dual tones (in color) of persimmon as suggesting a dual universe with male & female energies-- light & dark. Western suiseki author Felix Rivera notes this dual tone quality for suiseki as notan (Japanese). Inyo (Japanese) is often referenced in text to refer to distinctions of light & dark as a metaphor for energy best known in the West as the Chinese yin/yang "male/female" principle. Out of the 2 principals & 5 materials springs the world of objects which is maya (Indian) "illusion."
