Unorthodox Root Over Rock... or Skull

I've been growing this bad boy for almost 4 years but it's finally ready for display.
 Well, almost ready, I still need a good pot. It's very much a non-traditional bonsai, I don't think most real bonsai growers would use a skull designed as an aquarium decoration to do root over rock on. But I'm not concerned about that, I just think it looks awesome. It's one of my ficus benjamina cuttings that I rooted in water, so here is proof that they can thrive. I've also wired it and once I go through all the pictures of that I took I'll do a post about it, too. I'm also going to be doing a more orthodox root over rock this spring so I'll do a big how-to post about it then. Lots of fun stuff coming up in the next few months, stay tuned.
