I know that not everyone likes this piece - and perhaps I should be ashamed to admit it, but I really do like thi s one. A lot.
Thanks for the lovely photograph of it, Candy.
Best regards,
Carl

This is Salvador Lenz at work. I like it very much. Is it the strike of a genius? Is it kitsch? Is it a tree that Nick will later on tell us he has discarded anyway and it never was good enough for a good bonsai and we are admiring a piece of crap? Yes, it was a discarded tree that together with Penelope made a most unique piece. Like the plastic lobster of Dali together with a telephone is unforgettable.
Ok, Nick, come out of the backwoods. Tell us that we are barking up the wrong tree here. Schelm!

Well,
Since I'm new this and have nothing to lose then I will say in all my ignorance that I think it's incredible! I'm not used to seeing roots that are so fluid. The balance is amazing! I've never seen a tree look more... ALIVE. The effect is one of a tree that is actually moving before your eyes, like a snake wrapped around a statue. Or even of some sort of dendrophiliatic scene in which that woman is actually about to make love to the tree. It is a very bold scene that I think demands a better critique than I could ever give it.
Very inspiring.

This is art that truly inspires me...
This is something that is totally unique...
This is the type of art that will bring bonsai into the new century, assist it in becoming recognized as a 'western art', and create a new group of admirers and purchasers of bonsai and related items...
Art of this magnitude will eventually gain the attention of those in charge of art museums, and open new venues for the display of potted trees...
But, in spite of all of this, I still like this work...
Regards
Behr

Not for me. I like the tree and the statue, but not together. I'm sure it is based on the fact that the roots mimic a snake about to constrict the woman and it makes me want to pull out my knife and start stabbing!!! If I could just focus on the statue as an inert material (which it is) rather than a living woman, I could probably appreciate this more.
Of course, if unique duality of art simultaneously co-existing was the goal, then all I can say is mission accomplished.
