Super indeed! cheers

I love the way the raft builds a bridge in the center, it made me think of these incredible tree bridges in India (http://rootbridges.blogspot.fr/)

A really beautiful penjing...

Thanks Ryan, not significantly reduced, around 3 cm, but small enough for the size of the tree.

Beautiful work Robert ! It is so nice to see a ficus designed in something other than banyan style. This one is special !!

Thanks Ed, John..it has been trained for more than 15 years. Still need to work a little bit on the first two branches and the river bank...

Here is another one, the same size, the pot is 120 cm width.

Very cool trees Robert. When I first looked at them I thought the title said they were phemphis. Even more impressive with a Ficus benjy.

Thanks Robert for sharing these ficus rafts. Very impressive creations. Can you give us a small evolutionary history viz. how they were created etc.

Thanks Jerry, I know you will love them.
BTW, I plan for the China penjing tour around April next year as we talked about, any thought or suggestion ?
Two days for penjing learning program, visit one of the biggest private penjing collections, go to Guilin and Huangshan (Yellow Mt)...maybe about a 10 days tour...

Thanks Cosmos.
I got the material from a local nursery, it was from a big cut of a branch I think. When I got it, there were only the big main tree and a small one on the left; then I redesign the composition. Unfortunately I don't have the pictures to show when it was started...
