I love the dead roots and stumps of the trees so I brought me some home from nearby forest.
One I used as a decoration in our front garden and other is a stand for saikei.
It is painted with wood protective coat of paint so I wonder how long it will last.
I don´t like supermarket garden decorations, they are too cheesy - these are original and for free.
Well I had to bring them home on a tractor with trailer and used full pack of paint worth 27 euro on each.
