Volcanic Iwagumi Morphology...
What started out as Mt Keilir in a stark and rugged lava field, my original Oyaishi, became a 9 stone layout with a semi-precious, lapis lazuli Suteishi (sacrificial) stone representing a glacier (Iceland's Vatnajokull) feeding the fjord.
There is no fjord near Mt Keilir, however. The "fjord" represents a geological feature on Adak known as Finger Bay. This long, narrow inlet was used as a clandestine submarine base in WWII due to its depth, and its protection from air attacks by the elevations on both sides of the bay. The Fukuishi is directly across the bay from the Oyaishi, both angled toward the other, forming a narrow, tension-filled chasm.
