I’ve seen hundreds if not thousands of literati bonsai (photos, that is) but very few quite like these. Enough said though (getting sucked back into work isn’t any way to enjoy a vacation).
All three photos in this post are from the Malaysia Bonsai & Stone International Exhibition 2012. I found them on Robert Steven’s facebook page. Even though this post says part 2, it’s actually our 3rd post from the Exhibition (including Robert’s demo). Here’s a link to part one.
Again, not your traditional literati pot. I think both this one an the one above present a pretty unique expression of literati bonsai (especially if your view of bonsai has been heavily influenced by the Japanese tradition).
Bunjin. This one is bit more like what I’m referring to as traditional Literati bonsai (aka Japanese style). Apologies for the fuzz. I had to almost double the original in order to get this one up to full size. Still, even though it’s a bit fuzzy, I think you get the feel.
