"My dream of ancient Petra"

Post  Guest on Thu Jun 23, 2011 11:10 am

Hi friends

A few years ago, I found this stone on the spanish island Mallorca.
It is a hard rock. And it was found in a, for the summer dry stream, who must be a torrent stream in some parts of the year. It was laying among really big boulders. And with a miracle it has no resent knokoffs.

I call it "Petra" after the ancient city in Jordan, because of the texture of the side of the stone, and also does it have tunnel/cave on/in the "roof".

I hope you like the stone......I like to show it in a suiban, but for the everyday display, would it be nice with a dai too....I hope Peterbrod will draw me an example to guide me Very Happy.

The "Treasury" at Petra in March of 2011, a cold and rainy day.
The "treasury" is really a tomb, but the occupant is long gone.

The daiza Peter illustrates would have to be as deep on the left side as right side unless the wedge was deeper. Arguably, the stone would be better displayed with a narrower daiza without the wedge-- closely grasping the stone from the daiza's perimeter. The stone will have an overhang on each end in either case. Without the wedge the daiza could be much less massive and, thus, better promote the stone as a suiseki.

Hi Yvonne... There is no excuse except my clumsiness for the lack of drawing quality. This is a shorter version of Peter's design with 3 legs roughly indicated. I appreciate Peter's daiza-design & construction skill. Respectfully, the wedge seems unnecessary to partially fill an overhang when a short daiza will support the stone...

For Peter's illustration of 2 stones with different contour, the following daiza lengths seem more practical...


Am I missing something that you intend with the eyes and arrows, Peter?

Hi Yvonne ,
I am as familiar and popular with the rock material and shape like this ... and I think , your stone will fit better if
you put it in SUIBAN .
Thank You ,
Sincerely ,
Hưng - Trần .

Hi Trantanhung

I am happy you like the stone, and it is a good idea to exhibit the stone i a suiban. But I also like a dai for the stone....

Thanks to Peterbrod and Chris for examples.
I guess my choice is a crossbreed between the last one from Chris, and the last one from Peterbrod.
This is pretty much, what I was thinking in the first place....now I fell sure Very Happy. Many thanks.

Kind regads Yvonne
