    It's begging for a few figures to hang out around/on it.

    I love the base! Is that a cross-section of tree branch?

    It's a slice of white pine. Actually found it in a craft store. I think they can be used for a clock face.

    A different idea from the usual rectangular diorama. I like it... but those trees are looking a little bare on top.
