Taxodium Distichum - Bunjin

Post  Mohan on Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:45 pm

Hi IBC,
Had seen in Singapore, plants mainly junipers styled as Dragons, Chinese calligraphy and Good luck symbols. Inspired by that, have styled Taxodium Distichum as ‘OM” and planted it in a conch. Can this be called a bonsai in Bunjin style? What are the limitations of the Bunjin style or is it limitless?








Regards,

Mohan.

Mohan,

Literati style, may simply be the thoughts the image stimulate.
[ watch the blue, it is a bit distracting, and the shell as stark white isn't helping too much.]

I like the idea, would love to see this tree in about 20 years+.
Nice to have the mind stretched a bit.
Thanks for showing.

Shell is not a conch (Strombus sp.). Looks more like a Tun shell, (Malea sp.).

I'd get rid of (or shorten) one of those topmost branches. They are too mirror-image like.
