Can you imagine all what this tree could see? and all the stories it could tell!
I like the way the branches found their ways, with curves..

What a magnificent tree! Fascinating! It reminds me a bit of the huge tree in My Neighbor Totoro — but that grew vertically rather than horizontally like this one.

It's an incredible looking tree. The best part is that it is still alive and treasured by everyone after centuries.
