After seeing Inception, I had to make my own totem. Two turned wooden tops (one oak, one ???), finished with tung oil and wax.

But what I really liked is the way he framed the piece on this wall. Using different sized frames, of the same design, to continue the tree branch drawing (at least I think it’s a drawing). What a great look, I’m going to have to rip this off.
