The tree is magnificent of course, but I don't like the direct light on the tree, it washes out the color of the foliage and casts a distracting shadow on the wall behind the tree. I would prefer a black screen and no light.This Cal. juniper is very impressive. In fact I consider this tree one of the best C. junipers in California.
(At this time)
In the future there are some that may surpass it. This tree belongs to Dr. Seiji Shiba immediate past chairman of the GSBF Collection North. Being he was placed near Hideko Metaxis in the Museum, she offered her assistance in making a decision on setting the display. Hideko thought that due to the large nature of the tree and the close proximity of the accent that shoehorning a scroll into the image was going to hurt more than help. The Dr. did indeed bring a scroll for this display but it was not used. I wish I had seen the scroll so I could have imagined what it would have looked like.
It was decided that a two point display would be better. (In hindsight since Seiji had this tree and Hideko had the rather unassuming gingko's I think she may have sabotaged Seiji....I will talk to her about this at my earliest convienance)
Also keep in mind that this display is 9 feet wide and that tree took up full well over half the display room. This is a large tree. If I had a tree like this I would want everyone to admire it also, but when 2,500.00 is on the line I might have brought a smaller tree just to make sure I could tell my story.
