Ishidoro — the stone Japanese lantern is always aesthetically pleasing. Unlike anything you might see in the West, Asian statues seem to have a mind of their own. Just like the art that you might see in the West, these lanterns can have meaning - placed with one leg in water and the other on on shore harmonizes Earth with water. Located on a hillside it reaches to the skies. Look carefully at the designs - some with the lotus flower, others may have wavy lines to mean water. The overhanging roof holds the snows off the lantern making a beautiful winter scene. Whatever meaning your Japanese lantern have when you carefully place it - you will have a story to tell your family and guests.
A whole new world to your own yard appears when you purchase your Japanese garden lantern from Tricker's.
