This antique plinth was once part of a Japanese stone lantern. In the present, it can be used to put ornaments on display in the garden. It can also function as a beautiful authentic individual ornament. Reusing materials like this is very common in the Japanese garden and perfectly captures the philosophical concept of Wabi-Sabi.
The text on two sides of the plinth reads Jōyatō (常夜燈). This is Japanese for the lantern that burns all night long, which is in reference to the stone lantern that it was once a part of. This text makes the plinth perfect to place a small lantern on.
