An interesting shohin that I almost chose for the auction bonsai of the month for December - though it is a little too close in theme to the November featured bonsai. It is a wierd tree; almost reminds me of an alien :) I don't like the current front. The back is interesting. Makes me want to buy the tree to figure out a way to bring a better design out. Gotta love the wiring :)







Current auction price $400 (gotta hate the weak dollar). Buy it now for $1455...

Reminds me of nothing, just way too many branches, to my eyes desperately needs thinning out, just aint no space for the birds to fly in and out.

Odd tree. I haven't decided yet if I love or hate the two roots in the current front...I lean towards "hate" but I might change my mind...

Interesting tree. Reminds me of a troll that lives under the bridge down the street. Colin said once long ago that if a tree/material has a Tolkienesk quality about it, its worth exploring. I believe this falls into that category

Looks to me like a sea creature that wandered onto some dirt. Maybe then putting its head up its rear. And got stuck.

Any thoughts on sharing your link?
I can't find it :( I spent a couple hours on several auction sites last night and went back tonight and can't locate it. It may have expired, or I just overlooked it. On Yahoo! Auction Japan there are over 215 pages of auctions right now under "bonsai", not counting all the secondary auction sites - that's a lot of stuff to lose a tree in...

Thanks Greg! I wasn't looking for this particular tree, but for the site you are fetching these from. I'll give it a whirl.
