Over a thousand years ago Suiseki Stones were presented by Chinese Scholars to the Japanese Empress as gifts. A Suiseki stone is a totally natural rock formation resembling either mountains, human dwellings, waterfalls and other pictures.
The art of Suiseki is for the observer to interpret the picture presented. Poems and names are sometimes then attributed to the rocks.
This Suiseki stone originated from river rocks in Taiwan in 1990. Nowadays these rocks are extremely scare. This large oval shaped Suiseki features a mountain range obscured amongst the mist.
