These pictures confirm what I posted the first time. You should cut back all those large, unattractive branches and let it grow back. The trunk is impressive, but until you get rid of those huge straight branches it will not make a nice bonsai.

If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, find a local bonsai club. You'll get all the help you can stand.

Good luck,
Ed

You need to find a local resource for answering these questions. I pointed out things I thought do not look good. I can tell you almost nothing about growing bonsai in Brazil.

Sorry.

Dear Colleague,

I think Ed meant by the lack of apearence of bonsai is to have it a shapeless crown. Maybe if you centralize the cup and makes it more conical.
She's three trunk, pull the two sides and cutting the central lanceolate shape.
In order to give an opinion of the place of cutting, grazing the plant, to visualize all the branches, and take other pictures around it. We make a design.

Good Lucky
