Driftwood Ickibana

This is an example of the beautiful driftwood that can be found in our back yard. It is Bristlecone Pine Ickibana that Chris collected from the water's edge, several miles below the majestic Long's Peak and Mount Meeker in Colorado. He made it into a wall hanging (Roughly 3 ft high by 2 ft at it's maximum width).
It is an unusually fine specimen of the the oldest living organism on Earth, which thrives at unusually high and inhospitable, Arctic Tundra elevations above Timberline.
The form invokes perseverance, tenacity and dedication to life's purpose even under the harshest conditions of Nature.
