I was walking down a mountain when this old root lying on
the ground attracted my attention. These shrubs roots always
have beautiful spiralic shapes but this one was even better
than usual. The top image was taken 'in situ'.
I took it home
(to add to my collection of stuff lying on my terraces) and
photographed it 'standing' with the sky as a background. It
reminds me of a dancer or a ship's figurehead.
