Item description
Rocks and stones are used in nearly every Japanese garden. Japanese zen- and rock gardens, Karesansui, consist only of rocks, stones, and gravel. Japanese gardens generally use rocks and stones in subtle ways to evoke and mimic the qualities of the natural landscape. The most common arrangement is one or more groups of three rocks. One common triad arrangement has a tall vertical rock flanked by two smaller rocks, representing Buddha and his two attendants.

Japanese gardens also often feature large boulders that are sunk into the ground for scenic effect. In ancient time when the first garden manual, Sakuteiki, was written, rock setting was a very serious task.

In the oldest garden manual from Japan, started around 1100, the Sakuteiki, the authors explain that the Japanese garden should be like an abstract, miniature rendering of the surrounding nature, with all its features. According to the masters, it would be a matter of importance to apply ornamental stones, rocks, trees, and plants from to surrounding environment. Next to a great collection of very special Japanese ornamental rocks and stones, we also have various wonderful ornamental stones and rocks from the European Alps in our collection.
