The mugo with lots of bizarre deadwood -part 5

So I spent a couple of hours thinning the huge dead branch. Juergen has created very fine and bizarre deadwood. While I normally don't do it as bizarre, I took great care to style the thick branch to fit into the rest of the design while thinning it considerably. One can see that it almost started to burn while working with the wire brush.I also went over the rest of the deadwood with the wire brush to take away the signs of the hand of man.
