At first glance I was tempted to call the sculpture angel or eagle wings, but after only a moments consideration, it became clear that it is a wind swept coniferous tree, of the type that is so common on the west coast of Vancouver Island. These stunted, often very old trees considering their small size, are Nature's bonsai, no doubt the inspiration for the original Japanese bonsai masters, who also lived on the edge of the fierce Pacific Rim. The pond's stepped falls and small dancing fountains can't possibly mimic the Pacific Ocean, but are a decent perch for this wonderful sculpture of a wind swept tree to rest.
