South African Mountain Stone

I went collecting with the late Werner Bub in the mid 90's in the Transvaal, South Africa. The amazing rock formations resemble the Ligurian Stones from Italy and some of the Japanese stones.

Werner Bub
Werner, one of the worlds great Bonsai Artists, took me on a Safari to find his special stones. We discovered this one face down. He knew exactly what to look for, dug it up for me and we carried it back to Jo'burg.
 
I brought it back to Scotland along with this exquisite stone in the shape of a sitting monk. A gift from Werner.
 

These pictures show the stone after cleaning
 

The Werner Stone in a choice of Suiban

A spectacular memory of a wonderful man and a wonderful country. He was a friend and very kind to me.
