A Living Art Form
Found growing naturally high up in the mountains twisted, bent and dwarfed by the harsh winters and strong winds, these trees often took on unusual and sometimes fantastic shapes. Some were hanging down over a cliff in a cascade. Some were upright with thick, short tapering trunks and lower branches. Others were windswept, leaning to one side suggesting years of severe wind damage. These trees were treasured by early Chinese and Japanese aristocrats and were very expensive. Today bonsai, pronounced “bone-sigh”, still captures our fascination much as it did the Chinese & Japanese over 1500 years ago.
Through bonsai we can escape the everyday pressures of life and retreat to a world of natural beauty in miniature form.
