I'll be the first then...
I tilted the rock a little to the right side and removed the top foliage mass. Opened up a bit the overcrowded foliage mass typical of a ficus. to have a lighter effect based on my original post on this thread. sketch is based on picure B.

This is my second design reconfiguration...
A windswept, tilted the rock heavily to the right side to create more right side movement, deleted/ removed the unwanted foliage and branches, planted the tree in an oversized rectangular pot.

The Sirens Ficus

Post  Rob Kempinski on Wed Dec 14, 2011 5:53 am

I saw the tree and envisioned the Sirens beckoning wayward sailors. To make the illusion, use Mediterranean theme figurines instead of Asian. Smile
Prune the top branch, and bend the tail of the cascade a bit lower.

OK..this is the special X'Mas gift I will reward to the design close to my idea...

This is a pot made by me few years ago, a reproduction of Ming Dynasty antique pot.
The interesting thing about this pot is that it was burned in Qian Shu ancient "Dragon Kiln" in Yixing, China; a very old kiln over 500 years old and still working as one of the oldest kiln producing bonsai pot in China.

It's a limited edition of 500 pcs, nicely packed with giftbox, individually stamped and hand-numbered, with an Authenticity Certificate signed by me.

Another "interesting story" about this pot can be viewed here :

http://bonsainut.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4288

After going through a long and costy legal lawsuit, finally I got about 130 pots back. These are the only remaining stock from the limited 500 pcs and will be on sale soon. My attorney is still on the collection proceess to get my money back for the sold pots since the curt's instruction for payment had been ignored....

Wish you all..A Merry X'Mas and Happy New Year 2012 !!!

I agree with Will. I'll definitely try to work up a virtual showing my idea.

Well done Robert on continuing to pursue your property and to getting it returned - like you I totally believe the principle is more important than just finance.

Dear Pak Robart,

In my opinion I would prefer the image D, although I can not explain in more detail, so the first branch is removed so that the base motion seemed more bent and the roots that look more into the rock basin section would seem to be much stronger grip Smile

Thanks Agus.
All the 4 angles can be used for nice design, but either one absolutely need new touch to create better composition because I am not happy with the existing design...
