The canopy look good - as a single unit. The tall straight trunk is a bit of distraction even with the carving.
As for the base you might want to bring the small trunk in closer to the larger portion (if its not too brittle) Another option is to find some durable driftwood and make an inserted jin.

Rob,
thanks. chopping off the upper part of the trunk and bringing the trunk closer together would have a more compacted look. il consider that options in the next re pot.
