One of my favorite bonsai. If you like slant style, this is very slanty. Height is 23 inches at hightest point. Pot by Southern California potter Dick Ryerson

The reclining figure is known as a "Lohan". one of 18 Buddhist deities. The figure was made by a local Chinese woman who is a ceramic artist.
From the web:
"Lohans are followers of Buddhism's "Eightfold Path" who have achieved full spiritual fulfillment. They have reached "Nirvana," the state of absolute freedom from worldly cravings, and because of this they are no longer subject to reincarnation."
One of my haiku goes with this image.

REST BENEATH THE TREE
LOOK UP INTO THE BRANCHES
SEE THE FACE OF GOD.

Very convincing. Was there a thread at BT about this tree? Previous owner passed on, perhaps? Something about the tree within? Just wondering. Anyways, another great example from Mike.
