This photo was taken at the U.S. National Arboretum a couple years ago. It is the top of a column that is placed like sculpture along a pathway. There is beauty in the decaying stone which was originally carved into natural floral shapes by man. Despite the natural theme, the symmetry in the design gives it away as man-made. Since that time nature has perfected this piece in her own way with erosion, offering to us her asymmetrical beauty.
