Skull Bonsai Art

Tokyo Bonsai just featured some amazing skull bonsai. Bonsai is the traditional art of taking a normal plant, most commonly a tree and dwarfing it through pruning, and root management. Wire is used to encourage the plant to grow in specific manners. You can find examples of bonsai as an art through out all of Asian, and it is through to have originally begin as an effective way to transport medicinal plants. Recently we stumbled onto some bonsai out of Japan that made use of animal skulls, and we thought it was a really refreshing take on bonsai. We have seen some skull bonsai done elsewhere with plastic human skulls, and miniatures. However the all organic elements of these really stand out. The real skulls stay in line with organic elements. Of the skulls the stag is our favorite.
