Long shillelagh is the sixty-second most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, less common than the integral with tub but more common than trans-R-bee and R-loaf. It is also the seventy-fourth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.
Two copies of this still life can position themselves in such a way so that they share two-fold C2_4 rotational symmetry. In this orientation, they can be considered one strict still life and fit in a 6-by-6 bounding box, giving it the highest density of all still lifes fitting inside such a bounding box.
