I didn't see any design merit in it, and saw it as merely a gimmicky piece which stayed in your mind for negative reasons (reaction, not statement). Nysha disagreed. He said that he first saw it from across the room, a long view of it. What he saw was a tree-shaped piece with an interesting play of light and darks. It was only when he got up close to it that he realized what it was made of and some of the other details which served to put me off.
I, on the other hand, had come upon it from close quarters, and I didn't see the positive elements that Nysha did. Well worth considering. Certainly enlightening and I came away from that discussion with the thought that I needed to see it again, through Nysha's eyes.
One amusing thing....the white glove lady hurried over to us and said "I'm sorry, but I have to ask this...with all the new equipment, that's not a camera is it???" We laughed and said no, and the lady explained what it was used for....and the woman had a blank face...I don't think she understood.
I, however, had my dear husband buy me one on his next visit to Lowe's....and now, for all of $3.95, I too can take the long view.
