Suiseki Display Scroll

This was a commissioned scroll and is already sold. If you would like to purchase a custom kakejiku, please contact to or visit our online store at 

This customer ordered a scroll specifically to display with a Suiseki. We consulted on various aspects, and they chose to do it in a Nidan Hyougu (Two Step) style of scroll. My only concern is that my display Sensei dislikes the use of darker kireji (cloths) as he says it distracts from the main Suiseki/bonsai.

With that said, I think it is a pretty color combination with the gold to brown transition, giving it an earthy feel that could be matched well with the rock. The Enso, was also selected from some my wife, Ryugyoku had drawn previously. The scroll is complemented with a beautiful pair of Ebony (Kokutan) jikusaki and Kincha (Dark Gold) hanging string.
