This wild Mugo pine has nothing to do with our bonsai pirates theme, though it may raise some eyebrows given its break with traditional bonsai styles, particularly traditional Japanese bonsai styles. It was posted by Sandro Segneri of the Bonsai Creativo School and Academy. To reiterate, it has nothing to do with our bonsai pirates theme.
Yesterday it was digital bonsai theft, today it’s piracy. Two ways of talking about the same thing, or has the severity of the crime graduated from misdemeanor to felony (figuratively and maybe literally)?
The following was originally written in February, 2010 and reposted in 2015 (with some changes then and now)…
At least one blog has been pirating our posts for a long time. No links and no mention of Bonsai Bark or Stone Lantern. Nothing. If you are reading this on any website or blog that is not ours, and is not attributed to us, then it has been pirated. If this is the case, please visit us at Bonsai Bark. Thank you.
This powerful Mugo pine is reminiscent of the revolutionary Japanese bonsai back in the 80s and 90s. It belonged to Carlos van der Vaart when we originally posted it in February 2011. Like the one above, it was most likely collected in the mountain of Europe. Also, like the photo above it has nothing to do with our piracy theme
