What I like about this stone is closer to Chinese than Japanese appreciation. Perhaps it is best identified in Korean stone appreciation as golseok "bone stone" where you can feel the interior energy of the mountain as bones underneath its surface. This is often applied in Korea to stones for which the "flesh' has laid bare the 'bone' of the mountain-- therefore, golseok are pierced with open windows (unlike this stone).

In Daoist cosmology & folk religion, however, natural mountains with energy express the bones of a dragon underneath their surface. The first view of this stone suggests two ribs & I feel the dragon in the mountain.

I wish that appreciating stones should not be that complicated I realy dont see the nationality of this stone,or the bones/energy underneath it, all I see is a nice mountain stone resembling a volcano perhaps.

Dear padychitan:

Stone appreciation is as simple or as complicated as YOU make it for yourself.
I agree with you, because that what is appeals to you. After all, that is the most important thing.
To Chris it means different things.
To me it looks like a simple mountain, great shape and color.
I could never tell where it came from.
So we all enjoy it our own way.
There is no "authority" who will decide which one of us is right.

Cheers.

Peter Aradi

The red spot on the peak's side is also very appealing-- you might choose to see it as reflecting the warmth of the sun. As a natural mountain scene, it has much in common with Mt. Nantai (also known as Kurokamiyama "Black Hair Mt.") which is famous in the Nikko area of Japan. Several named suiseki (including one of Japan's most famous) are associated with Mt. Nantai.

Mt. Nantai...


As Peter notes, I like the image of bones in the earth as bringing distinction to this stone. I appreciate that it is attractive for several reasons & that our forum encourages discussion of different appreciation. We all enjoy the natural scene.

Hi Peter,
thanks for your comment .

Hi Chris,
I am new in stone appreciation and I enjoy it so much that at my age I have been going to the mountains to gather/hunt stones hoping that someday I could find truly remarkable stone/s.I have tried my skills in woodcarving for daiza making, and my daizas are improving,I think.
The IBC has been a great help to me, reading comment/advices from people like you, who can explain in detail anything regarding suiseki,and guys like Peterbrod who does not speak english and uses the sign language but can equally convey the message he wants to convey and many more that I cannot mention now, perhaps later. Thanks to all of you.

Hi Padychitan... You pay close attention to stones, understand suiseki well, and ask questions which help all of us learn. Your respect toward others makes bonding easier in our widespread but sparcely populated stone world. Thanks for your continuing contribution to discussion on IBC.
