strange little ficus bonsai

Here is a little ficus microcarpa that I have had for a little less than one year. It's not much, but it's my tallest indoor tree. In fact, most of my small indoor ficus trees are cloned cuttings from this parent tree. Cloning is the reason I got this tree. The cuttings that come off of this tend to root easily, even thicker ones. I've had a difficult time deciding what to do with the canopy on this one and I still haven't a clue. The movement is a bit contrived and the taper isn't great. I might try to graft some branches lower on the trunk.
