I have recently styled this little one.
It is 11cm high and 19cm wide.
Planted in an "Erin" pot.

Hi Peter,

Must admit that it is a very fine JWP Shohin. The things I really like about this tree are 1) The bends in the trunk giving it the twisted, aged look. 2) The foliage, despite being small and limited has achieved the scalene triangle giving a convincing image of a canopy, branches et all and finally 3) the pot which complements the tree very aptly. Unlike most of the crescent shaped pots that I have seen, this one is more like a broken egg. Should I say a broken dinosaur egg and the tree seems to be crawling out of the pot/egg...

A very beautiful composition indeed and to know that it is also a Shohin is the Cherry on the Sundae.

Excellent work. Keep it up

Regards
Ravi

Great composition and styling Peter. Was this a reduction of a much larger tree?

Thanks for sharing.
I like your perception Ravi, a dinosaur crawling out of a broken egg.

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Ravi, I do like your interpritation of the tree. I had not seen that. I was just trying to keep a balance of foliage for the design.

Morten, Please!!. Give us a chance. You have enough fine Shohin. Very Happy

Will, the tree started life as a "New Talent" tree 8 years ago. I first styled it as a semi cascade and then sold it .
It was returned to me last year with a dead apex. The only live branch was a small first branch.
The trunk will need carving later but i think it has a future.
I will keep it this time.

Yes, I think the lines of the pot complement the movement of the tree nicely.

absolutely awe inspiring (on a small scale)

i did like it on a stand though...
just for that slight elevation of the tree above the "ground"

but still, pretty dang epic.

(but "epic" sounds large...
...can't think of a word that conveys the same feeling as "epic" for something small...  scratch 
i probably will as soon as i hit send)

btw - what/why/how are the flat green leaves ???

I would guess that the large flat leaves are to suggest wings for the hatchling dragon?  This is such a little beauty.  Thanks so much for the update picture.
