Hello Walter.
How about the character and color of those rocks in accordance with this rocky pot
and the movement of that lower right yn into the space of the pot?
Anyway i must say a resemblance to the Gibraltar rock where the tree resides on the moment.

Hi Sunip,

I agree with the color that would be perfect, but I prefer the style of the one that you did the photoshop for me.

Walter, thanks for the input, but I don't think that pot works too well. Also it would clash with the rock that the tree is rooted on.

Just before re-potting, I was preparing a lecture for a couple of local bonsai clubs that was based on the golden section. I used this tree as one of the subjects as it was a tree that they had seen in my garden and were familiar with.

Whilst applying some of the golden section diagrams to the photo of the tree, I realised that if I made it follow the lines I was drawing on to the photographs more closely, the tree would actually improve.

Before



After



The change of angle is only a few degrees but in a tree like this, even a subtle improvement is important.

I think a big mean Dragon Pot by Peter Krebs would look epic on this tree Mambo

Something along this colour and style

Hi Sabi,

That's a beautiful work of art in its own right. I am not certain it would work with this tree, maybe too much of a good thing! Too many conflicts....

Yes, true dude. I thought the colour would go well with some kind of Dragon around the rim and edge though. That pot itself is just amazing, and a mean looking MOFO Twisted Evil

I know this tree and just in front of it, you can see exactly how good is it...

The pot... mmmm,

I think in this case, the tree is as special than there are no exact rules,
I think oval form is the best because is a bit ambiguous, and many motives like outer edge, feets, etc. will give a stocky silhouette that I understand is necessary.
... but I think the most important thing is the owner´s taste.

Good luck my friend.
