Iwagakure (Village Hidden by Rocks)
Just how the buildings of Suna are made of sand, the construction works of Iwagakure are of rocks. The Iwagakure villagers take pride in the huge mountain ranges enveloping them which provides natural defense to their village. It is seen that the Tsuchikage’s location is the tallest in Iwagakure.
Just how the name of the village suggests, the Iwagakure ninjas are skilled in Earth release techniques. The brilliance of their jutsus range from something as complex as Dust release to something as sexy as Suicide Bombing Clones.
Molding chakra into materials was a kinjutsu in Iwagakure that was passed on from generations to generations. Deidara apparently found this fascinating since he stole the kinjutsu to perfect his art. The mouths on his hands and chest were used to mold chakra in to clay to develop his ultimate Explosive Technique.
|Though I have a strong feeling that the mouths on his hands are for making out with each other.|
