In this case even in kei-do it would be OK to have water in the pools. When displaying a water pool stone in a suiban water in the pools is Ok as long as there is a place and trail for the water to escape. In this case when looking at the waterpools it is easy to see that both curl towrds the center, meet, then flow off the edge probably representing a waterfall down the the side.Would it be too literal, in a formal display, to put water in the pools? Does that step over "suggestion" and into telling the viewer too much, interpreting too much?
I imagine the subtlety of keido would be disrupted.
Thank you dear, I love it too*Victrinia is drooling over the scroll...*
It's just perfection... you have a treasure.
Have you received your suiban yet? Toko Kazari is coming.
Al, you mentioned displaying with a bamboo water dipper. Where does one find bamboo water dippers?
Yes I did thanks for asking. It turned out quite well.It seems like they would be quite easy to make. Never tried though.
