In Authaya, Thailand there is a Banyan tree which cradles this Buddha statue head from the old capitol of Siam. I love not only the way in which this is in the tree, but the balance of the serenity of the face and the texture of the tree.

at some point I have to call it done. I'm not totally sold that I've conveyed the feel and balance that I originally envisioned. Technically it's there, lots of images on the internet of this particular subject to compare.
