Hi Justonlyou... Thanks for sharing these & welcome to the IBC Stone Forum.

The stones are very nice-- especially with each stone's deep & close-fitting hardwood seat. Each seat balances the stone well, and they suggest a natural contour of each stone's bottom. The stone resembling the dog is striking!

Did you or your father craft the wood seats? Their crafting is impressive.

According to me , your stone is not suiseki , because they was polished up . Do you realize this ? Have a good day .

@Chris: Thanks for your compliment. I was told these are also healing stones (My Dad put one of these stones near his bed in about 2weeks, he sleeps well and his pain went away). Yes, the Daiza seats are very useful as it's quite hard to move these stones from place to place.

Re the wood seat: My GrandMum had it made before I was born Wink I rather replace it with a big sofa!

@Thanh Long: Regarding the aesthetic grounds, what would you say in the controversy between cutting and not cutting the suiseki-stone? I would say it depends on which school of thought I follow. Some suiseki-stones are appropriate for rubbing, some are not. If people decorated suiseki with sand and daiza seats, why can't stones/rocks need some attention & decoration?

Anyway authentic suiseki or not, who care? As long as I'm happy with my collection!
