i believe that the design should be your decision...
perhaps assisted by others advice and your own research

having a basic idea and then asking for advice, instead of "specifically what to do" will help you to learn as you grow

Here's a virt done with a very unsteady mouse hand.  Cut it shorter, get rid of the large second trunk that comes off the base at a real odd ngle, then wire some movement into the stems marked with an arrow.

Then, plant deeper to hide the banana trunks.

first let me say that the before and after pictures indicates that you have done well by the tree and it seems quite happy. So take a little credit there.

With the two basic trunks available, I see what the japanese often refer to as a mother daughter availability. The heavier trunk on the left
is the parent and on the right, the child. If done this way, it will create a directionality from right to left and when your ready for a repot, you
can find an oval where the tree can be planted a 1/3 of the way in from the left edge. Keep your eyes open for a glazed pot of a color that appeals to you.

best of luck with your project....
