I see Heven's dragon, too-- specifically, a dragon rising among clouds. In Daoist thought, mountains are considered the roots of clouds & rising dragons come from mountain caves when the mountain is enclosed in cloud cover. It was at one time (among Japanese literati painters) a favored view of Mt. Fuji to show dragons partially revealed through clouds surrounding the upper slopes the mountain.

Among suiseki, a more recognized image of Japan's most sacred mountain is "Cloud-covered Fuji." A stone owned by literatus painter Tomioka Tessai (with accompanying art by him) was among featured stones in the Sydney Moss auction catalog/textbook titled When Men & Mountains Meet. Notable suiseki collector Dave Sampson (who owns a figure stone & accompanying art by the important literati potter Aoki Mokubei) thinks "Cloud-covered Fuji" the most important Japanese suiseki found in a Western collection.

Welcome Stonener ,
Salute you ,
I send to you a reply for " the twelve signs of ... "
_ Explain to you understand what i have felt in your stone is very hardly with me .But :
The White light Group on this stone gave me the feeling bright and happy . Whereas the dark group on this stone
got me feeling the opposite : sadness , pain ( opposites with fun , happiness ). _ on you ?
Thank you very much .
Sincerely ,
Hưng - Trần .

Hi Stonener,

A dragon in very restless clouds yes.
What about a dragon in a wild river, a river dragon?
My attention got caught by the mysterious dark moon crescent.

regards, Sunip Wink

Dear Sunip,
Yes! river runs cross base of mountains,
both can been seen looking down, at bottom of stone.
Crescent moon is edge of dragons left wing, rising in flight,
right wing other side top edge, at it's backside... Shocked

Hey! Cris,
your right on as always, expert insight & information,
pushing onward through the fog... ThumbsUp
