No, neither really, as I stated in my first post, "I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on this one."Will, are you asking us what it looks like or what it might be?
I agree, it is subtle, I'm not sure if I'll keep it, but once seen, I think the image is striking.Yes, i see it now,its a horse... but it is so vague that if it were ever in a show everybody would dismiss it for a regular rock, i have to applaud you on your creativity though.
Ha! Years ago I had some contract work for Ripley's Believe it or Not. One of the items they needed was a shipping crate for the largest meteorite in their collection. Simple job - no? Roughly 24" x 24" x 18" if my memory is still working. I showed up with a crate to hold it. It took 4 of us and a forklift to load that thing in the box. When we slid it off the forks it cracked the 2x4 and 3/4" plywood crate bottom. Holy cr@p that thing was heavy. Had to build a new crate with steel framing and double plywood.My first reaction to the stone was it reminded me straight away of a certain collected meteorite movie. I found a picture for clarification and hunted around a bit and found a relevant quote from the show.
John thanks for your response. I have found that other than mountain stones and the like, most Suiseki that resemble animals, birds, or even huts are subtle in the image and take some study before the image hits you. Some famous stones are famous also for the vague but yet once seen, powerful images. Although some images in stones are so clear that they grab you all at once, I like both types.I see it now and like you said that is all I am seeing now every time I look at it.
Thanks for bringing up such an interesting post.
