From the title, I gathered the stone may have read "peace", or "prosperity".

Glad I clicked. Nice composition!

Nice. What is the size? A few varied pictures would also be nice. Tell us more about the stone please.

sorry for the late reply. thanks for the comments. the tree is about 12 inches high. in its original form, the juniper had very little potential with only a few weak spindly branched on the left side and all the stronger growth on the right. considering the tree's deficits, the choice was to remove the branches on the left and shape the tree as a right leaning windswept. the crescent rock was built by joining pieces of rough textured lava; in this case, to match the tree. the height of the rock is about 18 inches to the peak. the ceramic shell was made by a friend. this is an example where a tree with poor characteristics which could otherwise not be made into a stand alone tree, is made presentable by joining it with a interesting stone.

best wishes, sam

The Juniper looks great, the pot looks great but the rock shooting off the top to the right is unnecessary and detracts from a natural looking Mountain rock formation setting IMO
It would be interesting to PhotoShopp the picture without that Outcroping...???
Otherwise a really nice looking setting.

thanks for the observation. in my mind, the rock is the main element. the tree is secondary and complimentary to the rock.

best wishes, sam
