This is very well done! I like the individual tabs as leaves. And the cord looks kind of like a big root...

Wow, thank you guys so much for all of the nice comments!

To the person who asked how I did it, I sort of made it up as a went along, but for the most part I made rings of pap tabs using the method people use to make pop tab belts and bracelets, and then stacked those rings together and used wire to weave one ring to another. For the branches I did the same thing, only on a smaller scale.

You imagine songs that have never been played
They will try to buy you and your mind
