A Massive Bonsai Masterpiece

11/18/18

This massive masterpiece is a Japanese beech (Fagus crenata)

Yesterday we featured an impressive Japanese beech and today we’ve got one that takes impressive to another level.  We’ve shown it before, but the best trees are always worth another look. There was no attribution with our source so we don’t know who it belongs to, though based on the level of development and the meticulous attention to detail that it expresses, you might guess it’s from Japan.

It helps to have something familiar for scale. Though we don't know how large the human is (or who he is for that matter), you can still get a good idea of the tree's massive size

The powerful nebari augments the impression of age and stability.

Fine branching is another indication of age. It takes  time and diligence to achieve such a filigreed look
