Shishi Odoshi – Deer Scarer Water Feature

 

Shishi odoshi or deer scarer is a traditional component of Japanese gardens.  Water from a bamboo spout fills one end of the bamboo tipping piece, the shi shi odoshi, which triggers a see-sawing motion and the water is then emptied from the tipping arm into a bowl or pond, whilst the tipping arm is propelled back into position with an audible thud on a sounding rock. In the tranquility of the Japanese garden, the rhythmic thudding sound is intended to cause visitors to reflect on the passage of time.  Our Shi shi Odoshi & spouts are hand crafted in Bali and given 2 coats of UV stabilized lacquer.  All spouts are piped with 19mm Polypipe and a 19mm elbow, with plenty of slack to connect direct to a pump or to your pond or water feature piping system.
