Bonsai Before and after Refinement

This is about the same tree as the post below. This is before refinement:

And, the same after refinement and complete wiring:

  1. Wow! How long did it take Akio to complete the tree?

  2. Peter,
    he spent 7 hours working on this tree

  3. The continuity of Akio grafting and then doing the major styling was a terrific opportunity I could not pass up.

    It almost never happened…. the tree was placed in the BIB auction twice, and did not receive the minimum bid I asked: $800.00 a few years ago.

    No, I would not sell it for that now.
