Bonsai Roots
Bonsai Roots

Even the roots are wonderful.  The bright green — is it tender new growth?  There seems to be a whole world in this scene: the dirt and little pebbles, the reaching roots, the craggy bark, the contours of the edges as the trunk touches the soil.  There is a delicacy and intricacy in the miniature.  And if you saw the image with no information, you wouldn’t have any idea what the scale is.  It could be eight or ten inches, or eight or ten feet.  Hmmmm?
