Seeing dozens and dozens of these was very moving. They embody care and attention to detail and a mysterious partnership with nature. I think they were beautifully displayed on their rustic tables with the weathered gray fencing enclosing several areas, like jewel boxes filled with gems.
The unlikely twist adds to the wistfulness of this one, I think. The cragginess near the base and the deep texture of the trunk set off the delicacy of the greenery.
They feel like living shrines.
