Bonsai

Bonsai is the Japanese art of trees in pots. Compared to Penjing where the art is the full landscape Bonsai is focused on mainly the tree itself along with the pottery itself. The art of Bonsai is based on the original Chinese art of Penjing.

The goal of having a successful Bonsai “is to create a miniaturized but realistic representation of nature in the form of a tree.” However, not all Bonsai trees have to be small. There are Bonsai trees that have been recorded being 3 meters tall even though the average bonsai is 1 meter or shorter.
