Japanese Old Stone "suiseki" Mountain View Scholar's Stone / Appreciation Stone



This is a stone mined in Japan. Not only in China but also in Japan from ancient times, rocks in the mountains have been shaved and stones for viewing have been quarried. Such stones for appreciation are collectively called "suiseki". Suiseki means "water" and "stone". The name comes from the fact that I enjoyed pouring water on the stones and changing the color of the stones. And this item is also Suiseki, but it is for viewing without splashing water. It is made with the image of a mountain view. The flow of the river flowing from the mountain is also expressed. The river line is part of natural stone. Not painted. It goes well with a beautiful wooden stand. The name of the creator of this stand is engraved on the back of the wooden stand. The letters on the box are written as "furuyaisi". This is the name of the stone quarried in Wakayama and Saitama prefectures in Japan. This is a recommended item. Weight 2161g.
