These were selected by Nan either on her May trip to China or in San Francisco's China town. Selected for the interesting stone carving and/or incised calligraphy.

Carved under the direction of Nan Rae

Your painting is enhanced by the addition of 'mood' or 'side' seals. It is suggested that you use two seals in addition to your name chop and position them in a triangular shape. Perhaps place your name chop at the lower right of your painting and then the two mood seals at the upper and lower left of your painting. Sometimes I line them all up on one side. I have many seals in my collection and select them to harmonize with the design of my painting.

It was great fun discovering all these stones for you and then having the perfect saying carved on them. The calligraphy was done by artisans in China and San Francisco.
Each seal comes attractively boxed with a red seal ink pad.
