To my eyes, this tree presents a near perfect combination of grace and power. Usually, when you think power in bonsai, you think trunk. In this case, though the trunk is certainly powerful enough (what you can see of it), there’s something about the rest of the tree that can send power induced chills up your spine (okay, maybe not, but I’ll bet if you saw the tree in person…). Anyway, at the risk of overstatement; the way the branching and foliage drapes and flows and shows consummate balance of density and space, is just, ‘just so’ (as they say in Zen). Nice pot too.
If you to scroll down one post (or click here), you’ll find part one of this two part series on semi-cascade bonsai.
