Beautiful tree and work... Mugo pine seems to always take a back seat to other pines.. However, this clearly demonstrates that, many times, it is the tree itself and not necessarily the variety that makes a great bonsai.

The whole tree was rewired and the deadwood was edited a little bit. Now the tree gets step by step closer to my vision.

Regards,
Marco

It is a magnificent tree. It is beautiifully styled in such a way it appears totally natural. Nothing about it looks contrived even though the foliage pads seemed defined and manicured, they don't seem more so than nature would do in an extreme environment. Thank you for sharing the progressions with this tree.

Thanks for your nice comments!
Although it is a very modern styled expressive bonsai i wanted to avoid to make it look like a plastic bonsai. So I´am very happy that that my intention seems to be achived.

Best regards,
Marco

It may be a "Modern Style" in that it does not adhere to the traditional contrived sculptured and manicured Japanese forms it does have a more ancient earthy look to it; like it still belongs on a mountain top.
