The Ficus Ruminalis was a wild fig tree that had religious and mythological significance in ancient Rome. It stood near the small cave known as the Lupercal at the foot of the Palatine Hill and was the spot where according to tradition the floating makeshift cradle of Romulus and Remus landed on the banks of the Tiber. There they were nurtured by the she-wolf and discovered by Faustulus.[1][2] The tree was sacred to Rumina, one of the birth and childhood deities, who protected breastfeeding in humans and animals.[3] St. Augustine mentions a Jupiter Ruminus.[4] More here as per wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficus_Ruminalis

I love bonsai's!! Have never really tried my hand at the art itself, but there is a quite a nice succulent in my garden that grows almost naturally like a bonsai and I have often considered attempting to "convert" it.... although I am not even sure that is something you can achieve once a plant is already relatively established.... !tip
