Where did this monster come from, what was it styled to symbolize and who owned it? Hint, 'Chuzzelwit', the family squirrel is not missing.

Pat Nixon was the owner. The forty something trees represent samurai and I forget the rest.

Do you know what it is about them that represents samurai?  Just by looking at it I never would have guessed that.  Looks like a well developed group planting, I just wouldn't have pegged them as samurai.

"Forty-seven Ronin Forest" by Ben T Suzuki something about famous Japanese legend with 47 masterless saumrai (Samurai) avenged the death of their master whatever that means. Maybe there is a squirrel in that forest?

Actually, it does thrill me because it really looks like a forest.... just glad I don't have to move it around.
