mugo pine #14 refurbished

Walter did all the work on this: taking off old wire, plucking needles, putting on new wire. I like his work very much. The third image shows the tree six years ago. The pot is by Mateusz Grobelny. This is in the sculptural style. This means that it is meant to be a sculpture rather than a real tree. A tree that would be in a virtual reality movie and never on a mountain. An invented tree form which would hardly ever grow like this in nature. It's OK if you don't like it. For most folks this is too far away from the expected.

I am grateful that there are those out there pioneering new styles for bonsai.

Great transformation. I like your work on deadwood. Pot is just perfect with this tree.
