Japanese Maple "Penjing"

Post  Bolero on Wed Nov 09, 2016 8:24 pm

A Bonsai Landscape AKA"Penjing", I call it the Maple Grove.
It measures 24"Wx16"Dx24"H & it takes 2 people to handle, I have been Designing, Building, Growing it for 3 1/2 years, It is comprized of 13 Japanese Maple of various Sub Cultures, it has varied ground cover and 3 Monks pondering the Trump Presidency... it is still a Work in Progress, I will be adding ground cover in 2017, its heading for the garage in 2-3 weeks...

Nice start. But I'm curious as to why you classify this as a Penjing.

Because of the rocks and action figures.

Here is another view, close to level looking thru the setting...to show some depth and ground height...the Middle Rear is 5" higher than the edges of the Tray in order to gain some ground perspective for the grouping... I have a lot of work planned for this Grouping in the Spring...

Very nice!

But may I ? In my view, a wider pot would allow you to get more of a feeling of depth, 1/3rd - path - 2/3rds, see what I mean?...

And hold more action figures.

Great start.  (This comes from a guy who next spring will assemble his first forest.)  However, the trees all look to have the same height.  From everything I've read and seen, most all forests have contrasting tree height and trunk diameter.  Are you planning on developing contrasts such as these into the trees?  

Thanks for sharing.
