Suiseki 水石 is a traditional Japanese art form that involves the appreciation and display of natural stones for their beauty and unique characteristics. The art form values aspects such as stability, longevity, and immortality, reflecting the traditional Japanese values of harmony with nature and the passage of time. Suiseki stones are typically smaller –please note there are definitely (very) large ones-, shaped by natural elements such as wind and water, and are highly valued for their resemblance to natural objects such as mountains, rivers, and trees.
