Feng Shui Painting
People love stones and usually mountain energy people are attracted to many different rocks and also many have the hobby to collect rocks and of course they end up bringing wall art with stone theme and images, and sculpture of stones inside their space.
The best part to hang stone paintings and keep stones is northeast and north sector. And while you choose rocks and crystals for healing better to avoid them in large numbers in bedrooms and childrens rooms. Choosing Mountain and stone paintings and stone decorations tips-
1) Do not choose sharp stone images or landscapes with pointed sharp many points, jagged mountain are not good feng shui.
2) Do not choose barren mountain paintings. It represents a down fall and loss of opportunities.
3) Too many Stones in East will prevent growth of any vegetation, symbolically preventing wealth growth. Avoid too many stones in east and south east sectors.
4) Select the stones that you love, as interiors can be decorated with many coloured stones and pebbles but they must not be overwhelming in number.
5)  Stone walls and creative wall art murals must not be more than one or two walls in one room.
6) If you have a main door decorated with coloured stones try to have main door of wood and then use decorations of stones beside this. Avoid sharp uneven stone artworks near the entrance. They produce Shar energy.
7) Stones painted by hand in designs are better than artificial processes used to color stones.
8) Paintings with stones and pebbles are great for north east and can be hung on walls leaving the floor space free.
9) Centre tables with pebbles must not have pointed stones and  especially pointing towards top produces negative energy.
