Default End Graft: Flowing lines or Bookmatched

(updated with completed end graft, 2021-03-03)

With my current MadRose/German build with Bruce Sexauer, we ended up with an unconventional end graft such that the lines flow into each other.
It looks more like one continuous piece of wood, and I love it.

Of course, if the lines were horizontal and straight, then it doesn't matter.

For this particular piece of wood, would you prefer it with flowing lines (as in the photo), or the standard bookmatched end graft in which the lines would form a V-shape at the butt?
