Special display of bonseki from the Hosokawa School of Bonseki
The 4th Nippon Suiseki Exhibition is being held on February 10-14, 2017, in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum on the 4th floor. The Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition is on the lower level.
Over 100 fine quality suiseki are on display from Japan and around the world.
There are many alcove displays and it is interesting to note that nearly scroll had a moon painting
Additionally historic water basins and display tables were on exhibit including one valued at $30,000. I also saw two of the same display tables in the bonsai exhibition and Mr. Kobayashi pointed out the authentic and copy.
The real thing! $30,000
Mike Sullivan’s suiseki is special because it can be appreciated from both sides.
The other viewing side.
William N. Valavanis– This suiseki is special to me because the members of the Suiseki Study Group of Upstate New York gave me this stone on my 60th birthday (5 years ago) All members signed the bottom of the diaza which Bob Blankfield hand carved. They selected this suiseki because it is similar to a mountain range in Greece my grand parents came from.
It was very thoughtful that the Nippon Suiseki Association decided to hold their exhibition during the period of the Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition.
