Suiseki is a branch of the Japanese art of Bonsai. It is an appreciation of natural stone. This appreciation takes the form of an object such as a mountain, caves or expanses of water where rocks are present. Small pieces are often collected and mounted on a wooden base called a Diaza.


  1. Very beautiful! I did not know about this form of art. I wish I had not thrown away the pebbles I had collected from the banks of the Ganges!

  2. Suiseki is a beautiful art! The snow-clad mountains in the last pic are beautiful. Are those close-up shots of a coral in 3 and 4?
