Standing 67 centimetres tall, this is a particularly striking piece, due to the colours, and a tree with lots of character. The tree's trunk has a good thickening at the soil line, subtle curves along its length, branch collars with the remains of former branches, and near the top of the piece, the first large branch. The substantial roots are on a river rock that has a thin coat of paint, brightening the piece without hiding the character of the rock. The tree is an Acer macrophyllum, a bigleaf maple tree, grown on a river rock from the Fraser River's Herrling Island.
