Hi Thientrakieu... Thank you for the Christmas greeting. I hope that you & your family enjoy this special season as well as our stone friends!

Can you share why the stone's 'wood seat' looks so distressed. Is the appearance intentionally crafted to suggest age or wear? Thanks for sharing.

Dear Chris Cochrane,
This is a new stone. I used an old wood seat to put it on. Please forgive me if this is wrong. I have no intention to suggest its age. Thanks a lot.

Hi Thientrakieu... Thank you for sharing. I hope to learn from the variety of expressions in stone appreciation that occur on IBC.

The closely-fitted socket appears expertly re-carved for the new stone!

Was the stand originally crafted for display of a single stone? Are old or used stands commonly available for re-fitting stones?

If the stand is not intended to express "age," what should I 'feel' or 'think' about its pairing with the stone. Do the seat's top steps with low-rise & wide-tread have significance beyond decoration?

Are objects other than stones commonly fitted with similar seats in your region?

I hope you will understand through these pictures. The old wood seat was used for a small stone. I repaired it for this stone.
the wood seat was repaired for this stone.
