Stone Spirit Vines

These natural sculptures complement any garden, yard or home.  They can be simply admired as a conversation piece or also serve a functional purpose.  An alternative for a gutter downspout, a Stone Spirit Vine creates a beautiful natural water sculpture during a rainstorm, and is called a “kusari-toi” in Japan, where they are widely used.

Each vine is unique and inventory changes daily.  Most are about 6 feet long but can be made longer or shorter.  Please contact us for special requests.  We can also work with stones that you provide.

Shiva Lingam Vine (7 feet)

For sale - please contact us for details 

 

 

The Shiva Lingam stone is a sacred stone in the Hindu culture. This very rare and powerful stone comes exclusively from the Narmada River in Onkar, Mandhata, one of India's seven sacred holy sites.  Working with oxen and rope, they are collected at the banks of the river once a year and then hand polished.    These are perfect stones for meditation, healing and protection.  Emanating a vibration that will purify your temple or home, Shiva Lingams are said to contain the loftiest vibrations of all stones on Earth.

Currently, the Indian government is building a dam on the Narmada River and soon, these beautiful stones will be under a hundred of feet of water and very difficult to harvest. Already in high demand but scarce in quantity, the value of this stone will only continue to grow over time.
