Wow. This display just blows me away. The extreme verticality is a plus in my mind, not a minus. And the idea of "look into yourself" just paints a picture for me of the figure on the right as an ascetic meditating on the beauty of the gingko grove. About the only think I might have changed would be the height of the stand....a bit lower and I'm in heaven. I would say, however, that this is the most minor of aggreivances.Incidently this scroll is the one that is shown on Ms. Metaxis picture in Willie Benz book " Bonsai Kusomono Suiseki a practical guide for organizing displays with plants and stones", page 58.
It says,(I have no idea how to spell it), Kan jui sai or "view how you wish" or "Kanon, Goddess of mercy is here" or "Look into yourself"
Wow. This display just blows me away.
I love this display and the solemnity of its flow. It's hard to put into words adequately. It's stately.
