You might want to edit the title or perhaps post it in the first one, the one with a distant mountain.

These all look like great examples of stones in the Chinese scholar rock aesthetic. The coved island form would be suiseki (in the Japanese aesthetic sense) if not limestone but doesn't look like suiseki in limestone material. I once saw a stone very similar to the cove at Kemin Hu's booth of Chinese scholar rocks at a New York Fall Antiques Show. I considered purchasing it because it was unusual, beautiful and recalled scenic nature. Many scholars' rocks do this well-- the horizontal landscape scene was a popular form of Chinese scholar rock apprection in the 18th century (see Worlds Within Worlds for clarification).

Suiseki (in the Japanese sense) of limestone have forms every suiseki enthusiast should recognize. Many will have distinctive mountain range or mountain peak styles, some will have distinctive waterfalls as a main or subsidiary feature, some will have waterpools, some may have tunnels though it is very rare forsuiseki of limestone (because limestone is not a good choice for water aging & suiban display), some will best be descroibed as coastal rocks. The stones illustrated above look more like Chinese scholar rocks. You have to be aware of both styles to distinguish them as the deifinitions describing each overlap. The forms do not overlap very much as traditionally collected.

I hope the forum members will attempt some discipline in assessing their stones & not always use the word suiseki generically for viewing stones. Words that have meaning are less respected when used loosely.
