Shikaku Ikekomi Ishidōrō, Replica Stone Lantern
Item description - YO01020033
Stone lanterns, Ishidōrō (石灯籠) in Japanese, are without a doubt the most characteristic part of the traditional Japanese garden. The phenomenon originated from China more than a thousand years ago, from there it spread to Korea and eventually was integrated into Japanese culture as well. All Japanese holy sites, such as Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, use stone lanterns as sacred light sources. During the 16th century, stone lanterns became very popular among Japanese tea masters and they were used to light the path through the tea garden leading towards the tea house. Ever since then, one or multiple stone lanterns are featured in almost every traditional Japanese garden.
The term Ikekomi Ishidōrō (活込石灯籠) is used to describe stone lanterns that need to be buried for a part of the pillar. This lantern is called Shikaku (四角), which is Japanese for square. This refers to the general shape of the lantern.
This lantern is the characteristic Indonesian version of the Japanese Shikaku Ikekomi Ishidōrō made of lava stone.
