Hi,

The stone is stunning, and the presentation even more so! Is the "frame" (does one still call it a dai?) made from real wood?

Best regards,
Stefan

hi stefane,
nice to hear from you again,maybe "dai" also cause all are wood,the frame is made that way for to emphasize or enhanse the cross.when the stone is put,in its lock tight and wont fall off.a certain way to pull out and in,to secure the stone.again, if its a "dai",lets ask and wait fot others opinion,am a bit raw to this. Smile Smile Smile
thanks and regards stefan

I believe it could still be called a daiza since the "frame" is still a part of the base or daiza, its all made of wood. What is interesting and amazing is how the carver made the "frame" in such a way that it would lock the stone in it. You have to twist the stone from the " frame" inorder to unlock it.

Hi Alex... Of all things to contemplate in regard to this stone, the name of the seat is not very important. That we think about "what to call" the seating in discussion suggests why discussion leads us away from from the joy of seeing & appreciating. Suddenly, we are in the world of words, concepts & classifications. This world is shared with feeling & emotion, but the nuances are different.

One world values cleverness & knowledge (the world of words) and another values an open heart.

This stone is successful in touching feeling because it is not overly realistic. If it looked more like the figure it represents it would not be as compelling. If there was the least impression of stone processing (it appears entirely natural!) it would hardly be worth a glance for viewing stone enthusiasts. The pattern becomes strikingly clear in pattern when mounted on the cross with its diagonal crossbar.

That diagonal crossbar has reference as iconic Christian art. Some will perceive & draw resonance from the particular allusion of the diagonal crossbar. It is also appreciated as adding depth to the scenic allusion. I like the subtlety very much--it is less-common than the frontal view & adds human character & realism to the spiritual image.

In regard to daiza, I think it is a Japanese word for a fitted platform/seat crafted for one object. The daiza could hold any single object. In that sense, this is a daiza. However, nothing suggests that this is Japanese in style, feeling, resonance or aesthetic appreciation. The designer of the seating (let us not limit the choice to "seat" if another term fits) shares a vision with every guests who views the stone. "Suspension in space" is achieved by the seating, which feels different than the temporary rooted-ness of sitting.

The less that the seating clearly identifies itself with the Cross of the Ascension, the more the viewer must achieve recognition through the stone. Viewing the stone is where the viewer should first & astonishingly appreciate the composition. It is a high bar to craft a seating that encourages the stone to speak directly to the viewer.

Thanks for sharing, Alex. You have brought unexpected stones to the forum as well as sharing skilled carvers. You see images in stones that could easily be overlooked and display them such that they speak for themselves as striking images suggestive of boundless themes (and scenes).

Hi Alex... For whatever it is worth, I would only have seen a cartoon figure called "Gumby" in the seating for this stone. The image rose from the stone because the seating was not explicit until they were paired. Nice design!

Hi Alex... I am not wise, but I am very appreciative. Our entire stone appreciation community is very small yet keeps finding new expression. On forums, it takes courage to post & comment. Enthusiasts who contribute are very generous.

I just got back from a stone symposium in Pennsylvania (USA) & met IBC friends as well as others. It was very energizing. A lot of stone appreciation relates to people associated with art & their expression. This forum is so much broader than the organizers ever imagined, and the possibilities of stone appreciation will link many of us in ways we have yet to imagine.
