Found Bronze Dragon

Post  sunip on Thu Jan 26, 2012 3:05 pm

Hello,
In the thread of the Noh dancer stone, Chris mentioned manufactured Tenkei.
For fun here a not man-made bronze figure.
This i picked up in a bronze foundry between the leftover mould material.
By way of a crack, the flowing bronze made a nice figure in a spontaneous, not meant air pocket in the mold.
Much more natural power then most Tenkei don't you think so?.

Hello,
Peter thank you for your reaction.
Sam here upright but i don't get the right character on a picture, it does not show good maybe the light.

I like the last picture best.

I can actually see a Genie on a rising smoke.

I like this piece of bronze sculpture very much, especially the detail with the encrustation to mimic surface fungus (?) on bark. Very nice and very beautiful.

Hello Sunip my friend
I do see your dragon, he is there ready to bite,
coming down from the clouds.
head first, wider end to the right,
tail and claw can be seen to the rear, left.
perfect color, great shape, lucky lucky girl... ThumbsUp

Hello Stonener,
I did try your suggestion but it is not easy to catch in a picture.
Yes the dragon can bite at times.
For me the dragon is the fiery creative essence of being in as well gods, nature and human.
The myths are telling us how to get this potential transformed in to its original state.

Hello Yvonne,
Nice to learn you have the dragon eye to.
Sorry to read you are shocked.
However my humble simpleness is caught in a 59 year old male.

Post  stonener on Sun Jan 29, 2012 5:00 pm

Why Worry? "happy you are what you are. exactly!"
back to topic is Dragon, let us re-focus & stay on track.
Sunip i offer you my little cloud pattern dragon, in friendship
this kind is my favorite type of stone, needs no daiza, simply place on tray,
I call tea ceremony style, purest of form. This one is a "silli-seki" if you will.
fun!, friendly! & happy! child like cartoon version, puts a simile on your face.
seen gingerly floating across the sky in front of far off majestic red mountains
best size, color, shape, pattern & ware especially, found in desert so different,
red jasper 2.5x2.5"

Hello Stonener.
Intens color.
Once my eyes where captivated by those two dots in the middle of the white part
it is looking at me, there is also a red nose!
I have to see this one again i think to feel what it evokes in me.
Tea ceremony stone is good i feel or hand stone, it is an other way of appreciating.
One dollar for that tenkei!
Lucky.
Sunip, Wink
