Bookcase puzzle - in Hero's house

I found the clue incomprehensible, and having seen the solution, it still makes no sense. Could anybody please explain?

The first part of the clue-the trees (little plant-big tree), means that the items, going from left to right, go from small to big.

The second part shows a log then a pot then some stones.
This means that from top to bottom the rows should be all wood items, all metal items and all stone items.

So far (following these rules, you should have-
--------Small=-------------Medium=----------Large=
Wood=Fish (wooden)----Flute-------------Ship
Metal=Hook--------------Fish(metal)-------Horseshoe
Stone=flower--------------Lion---------------Goblet

Now comes the third rule. This shows a metal pot and switch arrows.
This means that for the middle, metal row, you should switch the order meaning it would be big to small.
So this is what the final thing looks like now-

--------Small=-------------Medium=----------Large=
Wood=Fish (wooden)----Flute--------------Ship
Metal=Horseshoe------Fish(metal)---------Hook
Stone=flower----------------Lion-------------Goblet

I understood the first and second parts of the clue when I played, so I had the first order, but I couldn't work out what to do with the third part of the clue so I had to check the strategy guide, at which point I saw that the solution was the same as mine, but with the middle row reversed, and I finally realised what the third clue meant.

Some seriously heavy thinking involved there! Thanks for taking the time to explain.

Yeah, that was a bad hint.
