Cast stone or reconstructed stone is not the real stone. It is a highly refined architectural precast concrete masonry unit intended to simulate natural-cut stone. To be authentic to the tradition, taste, feel, and appearance, our lanterns are cut out, hammer by hammer, chisel by chisel, from natural granite stone in salt and pepper colour. Unlike many cheaper lanterns moulded out from the same undetailed mould, every handmade lantern is unique, solid and stackable.On the contrary, those cookie-cut lanterns are identical, not layered and are light in weight. For example, a concrete lantern close to our size weighs only 1/8 of our lantern. And a resin one weighs only 1/15. The total weight of our lantern is heavy, but each of them is layered and could be stacked together.
Senny-Ji is a traditional type of Japanese lantern in our collection. Its name comes from a famous Japanese Buddha temple close to Kyoto. Right in the garden of Senny-Ji temple, there is an emperor's chamber, and from the main window of this chamber, people can see a stone lantern over 1000 years old. Please check out the picture of it in our beautiful gallery. This old lantern has given the archetype to any following Senny-Ji lanterns.
Our Senny-Ji lantern has 5 compartments and is stackable. It has an 8/8/8/4 structure. The big Umbrella is in an octagonal shape.
The Firebox underneath has eight sides with eight windows. The thick Platform is also an octagon. The foundation is four-legged, and each of the legs is a rhomboid section. We designed an arch base for our lantern, making it more vivid and more visible from far.As a whole, the lantern is so attractive, free from anything excessive or intrusive. A Senny-Ji lantern is often seen along the small pond.
Now, people decorate it with pebbles or sit it on a green lawn. Dimension: 22 inches in height and 18 inches of Umbrella's diameter. Compartments in the package: 5.
