It is really small. And it is changing every day. When somebody come to visit, I let him do what he wants with it. Change the drawings in the sand, or put the rock in another way etc.:)

I found the little figurines in the Mall. There was this place where they were selling bonsais for Christmas and they had little figurines to decorate. I bought 2. This little man and a kind of little house, chinese or japanese, I am not certain... :) I bought the zen garden for my daddy. When he died, my mom gave it back to me.

Here I am :)
I wanted to say that I loved this pic very-very much! The stone garden with a figurine(i don't know how the small japanese figurines called in English, in Russian it is something like netske) is realy wonderful!
I shall vote for you :)

That's a precious story about giving this to your dad and getting it back after he died. I'm sure it has lots of meaning for you.

Svetlana! Cool! I was wondering if you had received my message! And I think it's called a netsuke (Japanese:根付) in all languages. I don't know if this one is. I have always looked for a Japanese antique netsuke of a cat... Never found one. There are lots of imitations. And the real ones must be very expensive...There is a cool article about netsuke on Wikipedia! Hehheh! And thanks for visiting. I'm honoured! :)

Ginnie: Yes it is very precious. When I work on it, I always think about my daddy! We had a special connection, him and me. We liked to talk about sciences, and he was the first one to introduce me to the Einstein's time theory. I was very young, but fascinated! :) The Garden is a work in progress. I add some nice rocks from time to time. It's a zen experience. Everybody should make one! :) It's good for the Soul! :)))
