A note by the artist: "Although this tree is over 1,000 years old, it is still very strong. Until the beginning of the Meiji Period, the tree was covered with lots of tiny camphor trees. However today, there is only one left. The height of the tree depicted is 75 feet tall and the trunk is 5 feet wide."
