Bonsai, living art displayed at the Hina Matsuri Festival.   Do you feel the cold wind sweeping across this tree?  Pulling it to one side day after day as it attempts to reach to the sky.

These plants growing in harmony with driftwood and rocks.

The display on the right is a grove of trees.  The roots are exposed in the neagiri style.  Perhaps they were caught in a flood or tsunami which washed the soil away and left the roots uncovered and only protected by nature.
