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 superb suiseki is suggestive of a view from high looking down on a sandy plain.
