Ai symbol

Many of us feel that aikido isn't viewed by non-practitioners as being as interesting or beautiful to watch as say tai chi, wu shu, aiido, etc. But those of us who do practice aikido know differently, right?

So, with that in mind, what do you believe is the most aesthetically beautiful aikido technique to watch? I'm not thinking stricly in terms of nage, but also the technique in consideration of both nage and uke, and the "interplay" between them.

One of my favorites is iriminage with uke executing a breakfall at the end instead of an ushiro ukemi, and with a nice zanshin by uke. Ahhhh...nothing quite like it!
