Kyoto, Japanese Ornamental Rock - 0601-0169
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.
Almost all ornamental Japanese rocks and stones are selected on site by our crew in Japan. These stones and rocks were once part of an old Japanese garden. This particular rock has been part of an original Japanese garden that was taken apart.
