Thought I would share one of my on going projects with the kind folks here at B-nut. In October of 2005 my wife and I took a trip to Argentina. One of our stops was in the northeast part of the country along the Argentine-Brasil border in the state of Misiones. Weather wise, Misiones is classified as sub-tropical and contains large tracts of mountainous rain forest. It was in this region that the Jesuits built a string of missions during the 16th century. These mission sites were eventually abandoned by the Jesuits and the building were slowly claimed by the forests. We visited a number of these sites while we were in the area, but the one called Jesuitica de Santa Ana stood out the most. Below are several photos of this location. It is amazing what mother nature can do when left to her own. Seeing these ruins in person and getting up close with them provided me with the needed insiration to undertake this project . I immediately began hatching a plan for what I am calling the Root-over-ruin style. It is a style that occurs naturally in areas like Misiones and Southeast Asia. I would be interested in hearing what the rest of you think about this. Definately not you run of the mile bonsai project.
