Beautiful design. Only one. Whether you install flowers, leafy vines, succulents, stones , or floating flowers in glistening water- this rare shaped stone basin will never cease to amaze. History: Water basins Tsukubai are singularly the most popular, frequent and practical garden ornament found in Japanese gardens. They symbolize Buddhist “purification” and are usually strategically placed in gardens or as an indoor entry tokanoma accent to allow visitors opportunity to cleanse hands prior to participating in a tea ceremony event or before honoring a shrine or temple. These kinds welcome visitors to stop and bow in a respectful, humble manner to perform purification of body and soul ritual.   Lifetime guarantee of authenticity: All of our Asian works of art come with our Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee. We are members of NAJGA- North American Japanese Garden Association.
