Just found

Post  xuan le on Tue Feb 14, 2012 12:22 am

I am not very good in Stone field but this what I just found in my back yard. I know it is not a very good quality stone but it has some sort of human shape to me. I need a stand, base daiza or whatever you call. Your comments are highly appreciated

Reminds me of a picture of Confucius. In the first pic. I can see what would be his raised right hand and if you look close you can see, just to the right of that two eyes, the outline of his nose and beard.

Hi xuian Le

The collour of the stone is unusual, but the shape is very nice.
Make a daiza in a chinese style, and you have a nice little suiseki.

Kind regards Yvonne

I am from the "deep" south. Trust me, that figure does not look like a Klansman.

Stonener, yeah I know what the 3K is
Billy, I agree with you
Thank you Hưng
Todd, it is a rather small stone only 3.5 inches. Are you coming to the PBA show this year? I don't know if I can manage to come on Friday (Saturday is my son's weđing day.

Difficult to explain

Post  stonener on Fri Feb 17, 2012 9:44 pm

Xuan;
My mention of the KKK is only as a visual reference,
In first picture posted, at the very top of stone,
white pointed hook can clearly be seen, in profile.
center part near top of stone, eyes, nose and mouth can be seen, as face
on right side raised arm sleeve of robe as if pointing at viewer can be seen.
But I have only Hollywood Movie as reference(OH Brother were art thou),
with George Clooney, it is with this same type of humor that I make mention.

Billy;
I trust you know better! no malice on my part intended,
not a Klansman, as you say, no problem...

Hung;
I agree and like what you see best, Family.
Joseph, Mary and child Jesus...
But as Yvonne said color is unusual.
but happy having said this because
I have three white monkeys seen as,
hear no evil, see no evil and this one, I offer.
Speak no evil... Basketball

year of the dragon

Post  stonener on Sun Feb 19, 2012 5:02 am

Thanks Xuan;
I too, really like it a lot, shape, size & contrasting colors,
has action and symbolism, found it in a very funny way.
pulled off roadside on family vacation long drive, to pee.
so as I wet the stone then saw the image of dragon appear.
Kept it on seat between us, at my side for rest of long trip.
At first I did not see the wings, river or mountains at bottom.
my wife pointed them out to me, which were easily seen by her.
I left it in the swimming pool for about a week,
chlorine cleaned it really well... Basketball
