Simplicity, elegance and more than a little skill is expressed in plantings like this and the one below. Often Penjing landscapes will include a whole range of items, both manmade and natural.

The left side. What's going on between with the little tree and rock just to the left of the man in the boat? We could try to blow it up even more for a closer look, but this closeup is already a little fuzzy, so I don't think it would work
