As an interesting add-on to our discussion about owners of trees versus designers/growers of trees, these shohin are being maintained at Kk.Oshima (www.bonsai-master.com) who charges $100 per year to "maintain" them (continuing to develop the tree). They are part of a program that (if I understand Japanese properly) you can contact the owner of the trees through the site if you wish to buy the tree. The black pine in image 7 is listed as being worth approx. $4,000 - $5,000 according to the site. I think they are some great trees...
