Hi Alex... In gardens with a waterfall, an exposed stone is often placed at the bottom to indicate a "Carp Approaching the Dragon Gate." It alludes to a scholar facing his final exam, where he can become a dragon through his own merit. Your stone could represent the "Leaping Carp."

Dear Ogie

Indeed a very good stone, with strong collour, and strong animalpictures....eagle and shi shi.
A very good idea to make two daiza...this way you also can exhibit the stone together with other objects, as the pctures points in each direction, very usefull.
Just do I not understand the longleged daiza, is this a tradition in your homecountry?, what do you call the daiza?.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi JLuis,
Thanks again for the picture as point of comparison


Hi Yvonne,
Thank you for the compliment,the daiza has no particular meaning,its just that my korean friend who makes most of my daiza wants to give a bit more height to make proportion pf the stone,maybe also a bit on korean taste also Smile .By the way Yvonne whats a Shi Shi?

Your friend,

Hi Ogie

Shi Shi is a guarddog, also called a liondog. In China a Shi Shi Foo. A protector of religion. You see theese dogstatues by the temples.....they come in pairs, one of each side of the entrances.
A female with a baby, and the male with a ball.

Very kind regards Yvonne
