Sanbaseki Stone Sanzonseki Set, Japanese Ornamental Rocks - The first written guide on Japanese landscaping, the Sakuteiki, describes creating gardens as: Ishi wo taten koto (石を立てん事). This translates to setting stones upright, a description that greatly emphasizes the importance of these elements within the Japanese garden.
Traditionally applying ornamental rocks, Niwaishi (庭石) in Japanese, forms the basis of practically every Japanese garden. The setting of stones is always the first step, after which the garden is formed together with all the other elements surrounding it.
An authentic Japanese garden needs to evoke a certain natural essence. Rocks and stones play a significant role regarding this principle as they are pure elements, taken straight from nature.
These three stones form a Sanzonseki arrangement together. Sanzonseki (三尊石) translates to the three Buddha stones and is, as the name suggests, based on Buddhist philosophy. The largest stone in the center represents Buddha with the side stones symbolizing two attendants, with a supporting role. The Sanzonseki arrangement is integrated in gardens all over Japan, sometimes featuring more small rocks around it.
Sanbaseki stones exist in various shapes, sizes and color tones such as white, red, brown, yellow, green and blue. The rock type can be recognized by its multiple layers and occasional white lines on the surface. The name Sanbaseki comes from the Sanba river in Gunma prefecture, where the rock type originated.
